What a dramatic close-up, Emanuel!
I really like it...it's almost as it you only had the head and no body to photograph.
Impecable example of how shallow a DOF can be. Great work!
I also like the full-frontal POV, the natural ad lovely colors and the very clean and sharp details.
Bravo and TFS

Nicely focused on his face! I love it very much. :-)

Hello Emmanuel!
Beautiful painting!
Nice coup d'oeil!

Very well presented macro of a Mantis' eyes, Emmanuel.
Full marks for innovation and technical expertise!

Hello Emmanuel,
safely returned home - welcome back to TN!
By very creative approach you have turned this mantid into a spiritual phenomenon.
I like this experiment a lot, it is very artistic.
The naturalist part of my mind would also be curious to see what the whole mantid looks like to my eyes.
Looking forward to seeing more from your journey!
With thanks, and best regards,
