A fatal kiss, Saeed!
This one is even better than your yesterday's picture. Here the entire attention is focused on the two adversaries making a firm "contact".
A superb composition with various shades of green.
Shukran for sharing this great picture, my friend.

Très belle macro .


Hi Saeed,
Excellent shot on this mantis having a meal. The colors and detail are really good. Nice shot!

Hello Saeed,
Perfect timing,

You are true hunter. Who whom kisses?

Hi Saeed,
this is a very deadly kiss... You captured a "nice" moment! The picture is great (just the flash is too strong - maybe you could reduce force next time)!
Best regards,

Hello Saeed,
This is a fine capture of a Mantis eating a spider, sharp and well composed, though the mantis is a little OE. Fine OOf BG too.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Markhaba Saeed,

I already critiqued this photo before; when I did the Theme thing...
Somehow it was lost... So here goes again:
