Beautiful picture my friend. Mantis is my favourite insect, in my country it is very rare. I like composition and sharp details very much.

Excellent super macro. This mantis has a lovely diagonal pose, and his green color matches well with the blue sky.
Great work my friend.

You present us this "killer" in a very pleasant and spectacular manner. The simplicity of the composition highlights the shape of this insect at best. The details are superb and thelighting is marvellous. The overall impression the picture generates is very pleasant. There's just a little problem in the sky and near the branch down on the right. Traces of postprocessing?

In this picture, the mantis has a metallic sheen / glow and it adds to the picture, the exposure and colors is spot on. On the nit side , the picture is bit tightly framed ( but its my personal taste and need not be followed :-)
Good to see ur pictures and comment.
PS. I know that i have still not responded to ur request on the pics :-) sorry will do that once i get time.

Perfect sharp capture of this big European mantis.
Our NZ species has a much larger head and thorax,and instead of the black and white spot,ours has a purple 'ear' on the front legs.
This one is more similar to the African mantis which is an alien invader here.
Soon I will post the two species together.

Świetne macro. Wspaniały okaz, robi wrazenie. Jeszcze modliszki nie spotkałem na swojej drodze, mam nadzieje ze to sie nie dlugo zmieni.

Znasz moje zdanie o modliszkach - Ble :-) Tu jednak ten oblesny owad wyszedl calkiem ladnie :-) Podoba mi sie kompozycja bez zbednych dodatkow w tle i zielono-niebieska kolorystyka. Jak zwykle interesujaca notka. Fajnie, ze masz troche czasu na wrzucanie kolejnych zdjec.

excellent presentation of this mantis in a very graphic style. the effet is so beautiful with colours of green against the blue soft sky. Very effective indeed with the diagonal crossing of the branch.
well composed nd well thought presentation.
