WOW PIGGY BACK! right? :) love it! Great find, they are rare around our parts! Love this Trek Presentation; all natural beauty

A rare mating scene of Mantis ever seen on TN, Hasan. Congratulations!
A vivid capture from lateral point of view with sharp focus and natural colours. The flawless BG highlights the subjects.

Amazing scene and fantastic photo Hasan! The composition, the colours and the sharpness are excellent!

Hi Hasan,
I share Tom's opinion, this is a fantastic photo with a huge dose of "wow effect" immediately coming while clicking to it. Watermark had to be placed on the other bottom corner, otherwise a fabulous image. Hats off. Please, if possible, answer my off topic question: why do you only critique photos made in Cyprus? What's the reason of this isolation on the site?
Best regards, László

Hello Hasan,
I have only saw mantis in this mating pose a few times in my life. You have done a fine job of presenting this image to us here on TN.
I have viewed your gallery and am impressed with your photography and diversity of subjects.
