Mantis in action
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
Today one of photos taken during my holidays on Krym, Ukraine. On the picture- big green mantis- first and only I've seen in wildlife. I didn't expect to find such big species in that place, creature was hidden under the leaf near my place of stay in Eupatoria. I didn't have tripod with me so picture was taken hand held, I had to use opened focus and ISO 200 to take sharp shoot in such conditions. I have taken about ten shots- this one is the best I think. Cropped from original, noise removed in Neat Image then some levels operated, resized and sharpened. I hope You like it.
About Krym- still very wild and beautifull place to visit- I recommend for everyone who likes something different, really worth watching even if the acomodation standard is lower then in the eastern Europe.
Thanks for comments and any criticques.
