Hi Francisco, Very nice and well seen capture of this Mantis my friend, its quite amazing the way this guy blends in with the surrounding foliage, but i suppose that's the whole idea so they can prey on their victims hey!, good lighting, strong composition, great work Francesco and well done,

Hello Francisco,
this is just nature! A predator hardly visible wihtin its natural environment waiting for prey:
... and you discovered it!
... and present it with high sharpness but nevertheless hidden among the plants.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Francisco,
A fine capture of this mantis camouflaged among the leaves. Perfect focus on the head and I also like the details and colours. Well done!

Hola Francisco,
Realmente es dificil hacele fotos a estas mantis que tanto se "disuelven" en el entorno; has hecho un excelente trabajo, excelente luz y nitidez impecable.
Gracias por compartir,

Atractivo conjunto y buenos colores para la siempre atractiva Mantis.
Un abrazo y buena semana Francisco: J. Ignasi.

Hello Francisco,
