Now I see you are my neighbour with the same Mantis in a better composition. It even looks better than the last one.

Here is the full view of your Mantis, Ana, and I like it very much. This one is even better than your earlier portrait of it.

Brava Ana! Very good macro.
The mantis was posing for you :)
Excellent POV and DOF.Very good shapness and fine details.
There is some little OE, but the image is composed well. It is very pleasant: I think George will be glad:))
Ciao e um abraço! Vanda

A superb POV, nice pose taken with excellent sharpness, DOF and natural colours against a contrasting clean BG contribute to an excellent capture of this Praying Mantis.
Well done and thanks for sharing,

imho the bg a bit too present, otherwise perfect, even the wb ;-)
Excellent image with perfect clarity and focus.
Lovely composition, sharpness and fantastic details.
The contrast against the background is superb.
As I see the light is comming from the right, you can also try to take such image with the sun behind you. I think that you can shoot the insect from sidewise to see the bodylength. But in that case I think that the shape of the long legs has to sufer.
This is one of the best images I have ever seen with this species.

Good focus and nice compostion with this Alien Life Form
Ahhha ...I was wondering what can be this strange pedestal on the first image, then the new photo shows clearly the use of your rolling pin for home made pies ...how cool! Good day ...my and only aNa Ribeiro ...can I see..the anger is gone and some gentle smile rises on your face just like a sunshine after a storm ...;))) The Green Mantis is here...this time standing proudly like Don Quixote on his horse! Beautiful pose, beautiful depth and all in all a better attempt!!!! Seja feliz aNa Ribeiro!

a very beautiful image technically perfect, but IMHO the imperfect previous image has a greater emotional impact, very well done

Tu as été très active ces derniers temps!! Je découvre avec plaisir tes paysages et surtout cette splendide image de mantide que tu as prise d'un angle de vue bas très intéressant. Bonne netteté aussi. Contente de retrouver TN et ses membres aussi.
Un grand signe par delà l'océan:-)et un grand merci pour ton courriel aussi!

I don't know how and why I missed this superb shot of you - a fantastic close-up with excellent sharpness, composition and so. No need more words: this is a masterpiece. And the reason why George didn't mention the white balance is it's perfectly set here. Delightful job, Madame. Bravo.
Best regards, László
