It is not the slogan of the famous beer, but this mantis religious thinks frequently about this to be able to camouflage and to depredate and to avoid to be depredated. It´s hidden in a small ornamental pine.

We will spend one week in the Argentine Atlantic coast, enjoying the beach, the sea and the sun, if the time allows it.

Happy celebrations

Hi Hernan

Great shot of this mantis!
I really like the way the camouflage works here!
The selective focus is excellent, the contrast with the BG very beautiful and the details nice and sharp.
Very well done!
Bravo and TFS

Hello Hernan,
That is a very nice idea to present this green mantis hiding among green branches. All with nice light and against black branches. Maybe there could be a bit better focus on the mantis but anyway it is a very interesting and eye-catching contribution!
Best greetings for 2007!!!

All the best to you in New Year my friend:)
Great shot, congratulations!
I like this green macro, with great details.... very well!
Thank you for sharing!
Take care Ana:)

belle photo,bel animal. Amitiés Thomas
