Hello Marta,
You've captured this Mantis in a really fine pose on the dry grass and in beautiful light.
Excellent sharp details and a nice dark background too that makes it stand out very well. A lovely composition. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hola Marta,
Great close-ups for the mantis, a rare pose.
Gracias for sharing,

Best regards from Indonesia,


Well composed and wonderfully sharp. Interesting pose - yes, it does appear this mantis has lost patience. Great title! ha ha

Hola Marta:
Aún no he visto una sola mantis este año. A ver si aparece alguna.
La pose es muy buena, en actitud defensiva.
Buen colorido y nitidez.

Bonsoir Marta
Parfait mimétisme. La nature est si étonnante et maligne. Image très bien construite et d'une belle harmonie de couleurs.
Bonne journée et bravo...JP
