Un macro impresionante.Muchas felicidades.

I just love macro shots like this one with just a small point of sharpness, in this case the head and eyes of the mantis.
Very nice light and colors and soft BG color tones are wonderful.
Very well done Hernan.
Best regards and have a nice weekend, Harry

Hola Hernán,
Que bueno el macro!
Magnífica la iluminación en el insecto, los detalles obtenidos en la cabeza son extraordinarios.
Los tonos verdes dominantes en la foto le dan un carácter al insecto casi de marciano.
Muy buno el foco y la nitidez conseguida.
Felicitaciones y gracias por compartir la foto.
Un gran saludo,
JM

Hi Hernan
This Mantis looks like an Alien from the Movie. Excellent detail, nice and sharp. I hope he didn't have to wait to long for a meal. Nicely done!

Very good photo. The mantis always seems to make a great subject if you can get up close and personal. Exposure and focus are both outstanding. The pose of matis is priceless. Great work!

Dias sin visitarte ... pero sigues publicando excelentes fotos. Esta con un enfoque soberbio y con verde sobre verde. Buena composición y detalles. Preciosa fotografía. Saludos Hernan.

Hola Hernan,
Precisamente acabo de subir el sufrido macho de esta especie. Da gusto fotografiarla porque parece coqueta y atenta a la cámara, aunque en este caso parece querer evitarla. Saludos
José Ramón

bonjour hernan
voila un predateur redoutable que j'aimerais avoir la chance de prendre en photo mais ici elles sont assez rares.
bonne composition,nette et coloré.

Bonjour Hernan,
La netteté sur ce superbe insecte est impressionnante. J'aime beaucoup la silhouette de la pette ravisseuse, en premier plan, qui semble vouloir repousser l'objectif.
Très réussi.
Salutations,
Hervé

Se ven unas texturas geniales. Enhorabuena por ese macro. Desde A Coruña, Saludos
