[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is a post dedicated to all treknature members!
Three subjects in one picture!
Here is a typical treknature member in action, shotting his nice praying mantis with his nice brand new camera! The mantis doesn´t know he will be so important posted to the whole world!
The photographer, the flower and the mantis or... just treknature!
Regards to all treknature members!
(Special thanks to the member showed here, my cousin Fabiano, Fchede)

Hi Jose
Fabiano eating dirt just for another TN photo. Maybe that praying mantis will give a special prayer for him and the rest of us. What we will not do just for another photo or for that perfect shot. Sooner or later we all get in some peculiar situation or compromising position where other people might think we have some screw loose, but the trophy always makes it worth the while.
Great composition, lovely colours, and excellent DOF.
Very well done and TFS.
PS. I think you managed to find the perfect shot in which you 'violated' the TN TOS and yet you made it fully acceptable.

Nice and original to see people like us in action. Ori

Hola Jose,
Me gusta mucho esta foto, que muestra "cómo se filmó" y que nunca vemos en los cuidados montajes que ofrecemos.
Gracias por este toque simpático.

Ola Jose, uma ideia muito original. Acho que muitos ca ficamos identificados com a imagem. lol. Fiquei curioso e fui ver o que eu acho foi o resultado da foto do seu primo. Boa! Gabriel

Hey Zeca! This is good...just showing another different species of animal here in treknature...but wonderful animal, don't you think? A little freakish creature, but...good composition. These flowers make all the difference to turn it to be good, and thanks to Sony trade mark!

Hi Jose,
Excellent, a great idea for a post. I'm glad the administrators didn't decide to delete this. I love the look of complete concentration on his face and the fact that he is crawling around on the ground, it shows what we often go through to get 'the shot'. I'll take a look at Fabiano's gallery too!
Best regards,
