A magnificent capture of a Praying Mantis almost finished with its meal of what looks like a wasp to me, Veronique.
May I suggest that you avoid putting the subject at the centre of the frame and leave more space in front of it? Even your previous picture of a butterfly had more space behind the subject.
Well, most of us believe a picture looks more balanced and appealing when the subject is off centre and there is more space in front.
Thanks for sharing this lovely image and best regards.

Splendid and interesting capture in a very good timing, Veronique! You did a great shot.
Congratulations and TFS

Hello Veronique.
What a beautiful exposure you have managed here, the colour palette is rich and precise, and taking into account the low speed and wide aperture, the result is great. I have to disagree with some previous comments, this time I like it in the middle of the frame.
Regards, Felipe.
