Hi Lou,

This reminds me that I haven't seen a Mantis this summer! You have a wonderful view of his face and "arms." The color combination of the insect and the sky are beautiful.


Hello Lou,
a beautiful portrait of the Mantis religiosa taken from an excellent POV with good sharpness and beautiful natural colours, very well composed.
Best regards

Hi Lou,
A nice captured portrait of this mantis. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Laurens
a superb shot of this very special animal, great eye contact and terrific alien look
I like his green color, the contrast against the BG, the fine details and the position of his "arms"
Have a good night
