One of those instances where the fill flash was more of an importance and worked well....my luck with flashes is a pesky thing to get rid of. I would almost rather not have to use them. It makes me think of another addition to the math of lens adjustments and aperture settings etc....but for those in whose images it works, then by all means...and here is a good example...Very dynamic colours which make two points of interest...not just the mantis but also the perch...which clearly dominates..

U must be having tonnes of those praying Mantis frames in your archive and each composition special in its own way.
I love this well saturated colours.Superb sharpness and clarity of the mantis and Pankaj would love this , these rich colours are so charectristic of his shots as well.
Very well done.
TFS & Cheers

Very nice dedication to Pankaj. The colors are absolutely amazing. The green glows! Superb details of the insect in a nice pose on the pretty orange flower.

bonne netteté et jolie couleur mais je trouve que vous auriez dû recadré plus car ici la fleur occupe plus de place que la mante et pourtant je pense que c'est elle le sujet.

Very colourful composition. I like contrast between insect and flower. I am not sure how big is a flower but the mantis had to be rather small.
Very nice dedication to Pankaj too :)

what a fine macro of this Mantis!
You used your flash very well and it was quick thinking to use a lamp to help with the autofocus!
Very sharp and crisp with great saturated colours and a superb BG.
Nice dedication to Pankaj!
