It is not easy to post an insect like this to TN, just because it was captured by a small camera (cybershotP10) and there are here members trully experts to show wonderful macros where we can see tears in the eys of this animals.. I had some pp work to have it better. Well, this is not for macro category, because it is just a close up. But I´ve tryed to did a nice composition for TN. Hope you like it.

Hi Zeca, I think you have captured this Praying Mantis very well. With your camera I think you have done a great job. I have a Canon but also a Sony P8 too and it is a good camera, but it does have it limits. I still love to take macro shots of flowers on it, haven't tried a mantis on it, but this shot I think is excellent for your camera. You have excellent sharpness and you can see the veins and patterns on the wings so clearly. Well done,
