This praying mantis was found in the "Bird of Paradise" flower.
The back lighting and the colors made this image more special.

hallo Arjun
very nice picture of this Mantis on the beautiful colored flower
thanks gr lou

Hello Arjun - Truly beautiful...attractive light and composition. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes - Srikumar

Hello Arjun,
Strelitzia, as far as I know indigenous to Southern Africa, is a fabulous flower, especially when viewed against the light. Add the praying mantis with such good illumination and composition, and you have this fantastic image. Well done!

Hello Arjun,
What an eye catching image you have presented to us. The flower is certainly colorful and the back lighting has made it even more eye appealing. The mantis also has benefitted from this reflected light and seems to fit in perfectly in this scene. Focus is sharp and I really like the dark BG.

Wow!!!!! wonderful and extravagant colours. Nothing more to say just admire.
thanks a lot for this pic.
