Hello Hasan
a great picture of the Empusa-species!
The colours are fine and balanced due to appropriate light
and exposure. The background fits well.
Best wishes, Peter

Another perfect macro Hasan!

Hello Hasan,
A top quality image captured from excellent POV with fine details and excellent sharpness. I also like colours, blurred BG and composition. Well done!

Hello Hasan,
I must say the mantis in your parts of the world are truly a sight to behold. They have such interesting looking forms and colors. This particular one is shown perfectly with exceptional detail and beautiful natural coloration. Superb work!!

Hi Hasan,
This is so so good! I can't believe how sharp and detailed this is. I think there is even eye contact with you! It sure is freaky looking, like something from a bad Sci-fi movie. Really impressive.

nice sculptrous capture, TFS Ori
