Hasan TN hoşgeldin.Sükse yapacak bir kare ile başlamışsın,tebrikler

Peygamber devesinin bu enteresan davranışını iyi yakalamışsın Hasan, geriden ışıklandırma altında netlik çok iyi. Renkler biraz "sıcağa" kaymış gibi ama göze güzel görünüyor. TN'e hoşgeldin dostum.

Hi Hasan:
Firstly welcome to TN.
Very good picture, I like the light in the back of the animal because it highlights the contours of the body as well as design and color of the wings, makes it look more aggressive like the pose.

Hello Hasan,
welcome to TN, you start with a very fine picture.
The pose of the mantis are great, the picture is aslo sharp with a good DOF, the whole mantis is in good focus and stand out nicely from the BG.
Well done.

Hello Hasan,
Interesting photo of this mantis in its impressive pose. Very beautiful light and colours. Good sharpness and composition. An excellent start here on TN, Welcome!

Hallo Hasan
Welcome to Trek Nature and what an impressive macro you have as your 1st posting. Absolutely beautiful. A fresh and most delightful presentation, with lots and lots of hidden "pictures" in the image if one uses one's imagination. The colours are lovely and the detail is well seen. It is always good to see something different than the usual on the gallery. I like the almost full framed composition. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hallow Hasan,
Amazing composition and warm colours. Well done!
Best wishes,

Hi Hasan,

Simply WoW! What an amazing pose of the mantis, it might be normal, but I never saw such a pose. Very fine details of the wings as well.

Hello Hasan and welcome to TN.
Fantastic first photo. Congratulations. I have seen this remarkable behaviour of Iris oratoria. I suppose that your village is Stavrokonnou.
