[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Deroplatys lobata from Malásia or Dead leaf Mantis.
Like this one, most mantids are "sit-and-wait" predators, whaching out for everithing that comes along.

Hi Luis,
Very good POV and DOF. I like the framing a lot. He has a good camouflage. TFS.

Hi Luis
A very interesting shot of this spectacular mantis.
Excellent POV, great sharp details, very nice light and contrasting BG. Also a very good DOF, all making a super composition.

Bravo and TFS

Hola Luis,
Greatly capturing this mantis. Nice dark Bg. Have some blurry spots of the insect, but still a nice picture.
