What a strange insect! I cannot say that it is beautiful but you took a very nice picture of it. Sharpness is perfect as usual. The background is very nice also.

wow, a superb example of evolution in motion! It's interesting to hear that it's not genetics but environment that have caused the similarites in shape this creature has to the Mantid Family. This is a great shot though, superb detail, colour and light. The composition is very good too and your DOF prettymuch perfect. A great workshop too, good to see the comparison. Darwin would be proud :o)

A splendid post and a great note!
I really liek your macro shot here, showing this Perlamantispa here with excellent details and from really close. The textures are also great as well as the side POV - one that lets us see why and how it is so similar in looks with the regular mantids.
Your note is, as is said, terrific. Most people have never heard of convergent evolution and even if hey have, they don't know exactly what the difference with the other types of evolution.
You explained that very well here both with the text as well as with the workshop.
Bravo and TFS

Oh Marcello, non so più che dirti e che superlativi tirar fuori, insetto mai visto prima, che dirgli bizzarro è anche poco, meravigliosa nitidezza, splendidi dettagli, interessantissima nota, ws di comparazione, shampoo, barba e capelli, ci manca solo che mi inviti a cena.
Mamma mia quant'è bella, non la posso inserire tra le preferite che ho esaurito la dotazione, l'ho salvata e me la faccio girare sullo screensaver, BRAVISSIMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
un'altra grande cattura!!!!!!!
esemplare interessante per morfologia
e per tratti comuni alla mantide
notevole la nota che l'accompagna
un solo appunto che ti consiglio di effettuare...nel workshop che inserisco
faccio una semplice cosa:ruoto l'immagine a sinistra per gustare meglio l'insetto evitando
stiramenti al collo|!!!!!!!
complimenti buona serata sERGIO

Tu avances si vite, je n'arrive plus à suivre! Mais il faut que je m'arrête sur cette image fantastique. J'adore les neuroptères, ils sont parmi les insectes les plus fascinants. Et ta photo, elle est juste parfaite par sa netteté, son sujet, les détails (quelle machoire!)
Un grand merci

I love this animal. When I first saw one, it took me almost one year to find its ID (I was wrongly looking for it in the mantid family)
The live of larva is just as strange as the animal itself.
Perfect light. Brilliant colors
