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!

Hi Mariel,
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.
