Hallo Jose
This picture is a great!
Great image of this mantis and the way that has been shot is just beautiful. Great colours and details and the background is just great to give emphasis to the insect's features. I love the composition and the framing too. Thanks for sharing. Best regards. Anna

Hello Jose,
I love to see mantis from all over the globe as there is such a vast difference in size, look and colors. This particular species has it's own unique features. Excellent focus and beautiful natural colors.
I would love to see it in the adult stage sometime if you get the opportunity to photograph one. Well done!!

Jose, Mantids always fascinate me and this young fellow you have captured is no exception. Their camouflage is the most effective since they always look like the vegetation around them. Your subject would easily merge with the branches of a plant, the way it is shaped.
Very crisp image with just the natural shades of colours.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Jose
A superb photo, excellent detail, perfectly focused, good background.
regards yiannis

Ciao Jose,
Splendida mantide contro uno sfondo uniformemente sfuocato. Peccato che non si è mostrata con la faccia... Sarà per la prossima volta spero. Buona giornata.

Hola José
Que impresionante este insecto, éxotico para mi. Que hermosa foto has logrado con muy buen manejo de la luz, el color y enfoque y un fondo envidiable; nos se si el bichin es muy pequeño o huidizo, pero quedó muy bien registrado...saludos.
