Hello Mohammadreza,
A great capture of this pretty green Mantis as it is having dinner. Most of the mantis here in Ohio are brown, but occasionally we will find a green one which looks a lot like yours. I like the sharp focus and beautiful natural colors. Well done!!

Great timing and a lucky meeting,beautiful capture of this dramatic moment for the skipper,but good for the manthis,the dinner is ready..ehehe..perfect details and colors,i like it!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

So the Mantis outdid you in catching the 'subject', Mohammad.
Still, you are one up by catching both of them through this nice shot. It happened with me once when a Lizard ate up my 'subject' before I could press the shutter!
Thanks and regards.
