[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was amazing to see how patient a praying mantis is. The insects were all flying around it, and even landed on top of its back a couple times thinking it was just a part of the plant.

Hello, great shot!
Excellent details and colors, good pose of the predator and the prey.


This says more than just a study shot I like the way you have composed the senario. Its like as if he was pretending not to be there.
