The Praying Mantis......
I actually noticed a bright green mantis on a stump next to this bush as I was walking to my back door (I live in the woods). Used the "close up" setting on the digital camera.

In PP it is only re-sized and slightly sharpened. Tell me what you think.

A good capture,very well done.

WOW! This is a nice close-up. Very close...

Nice capture of this mantis. The details are sharp. Great work done here. Thanx for sharing.

I think is a very good Macro and light is perfect to highlight the face of the Mantis. I like it.

I had to laugh. This "face" looks just to funny (for human standards). Fantastic sharpness and detail and very well seen.
Thanks for posting.

Well done, great detail and sharpness, good use of DOF. Nice capture!

I think these are such unusual lookers that they become photogenic. this is a good capture but a bit "soft?". tried a workshop on it.

Fantastic full face view of this praying mantis. A portrait feel with beautiful details. Well done.

Thats a good one.
he is totally posing to you.
