|I was in my garden giving some water to drink to this praying mantis and saw the opportunity to take a close up. I love this pic. My lense got dirty with its legs but it was worth!|

You have isolated the face of this Mantid with skill, Mariel.
There is even the expression of friendliness on its face.
Welcome to TN!
Isn't this a self portrait taken by Ms. Mantis herself? Would be interesting to establish who has copyright.
A lovely close capture where the shallow DOF worked out well. The contrast of the green mantis with the orange BG is striking.
