bonjour a tous.
hier j'ai eu la chance de voir cette mante religieuse s'envoler devant mes pas,je me suis alors preparé a une petite sceance photo improvisée,je dit improvisée car figurez vous que cette derniere et venue se poser sur mon trepied,ce qui n'a pas facilité la stabilité de la prise,ah c'est sûr elle ne bougeait pas mais moi si!!!
enfin je trouve le resultat acceptable!

hello has all.
yesterday I was likely to see this mante religious flying away in front of my steps, I then prepared has small a sceance photo improvised, I known as impromptu bus appear that the latter and arrival to be posed on my tripod, which did not facilitate the stability of the catch, ah it is sure it did not move but me if!!!
finally I find the result acceptable!

Bonjour Laurent,
Excellent close macro of the head of a Praying Mantis: this is sharp with good detail and fine BG.
If you could have reduced the aperture to > 18 you would have all in focus, including the eyes: but it is still a fine shot!

Hi Laurent.
I like your perfect portrait of the mantis so much. Level of magnification is great as well as the exactness of details and impressive cropping. It is interesting that few day ago I have pictured such mantis at absolute darkness in the evening, including portrait scenes. That is why I can to compare. My compliments and TFS. I prefer yours.
Alexei.
I'll be back.
