Hello Inanc,
fantastic sharpnes and well captured picture. I maybe would have placed it vertical. It also seems logical if I look at the lights and shadows in the picture.
It's the first time I see a picture of this species. Well done.
Regards, Jacob

Un mention particulière pour l'originalité de l'insecte. Bravo.
Bonne journée.

Magnifique ... très belle réussite cependant j'aurais viré les ligne jaune en haut qui apporte rien et détourne attention de ta photo superbe ....

Hi Inanc,

This is a really cool shot of a mantid. It is very crisp in detail and I really like it on that olive green background. Very nice capture. :)

Hi Inaanc,
those insects never stop to amaze me, there are so many diffrent species of it around the world.
You captured this perfectly, I like the composition with this neutral BG showing it off so well. POV, sharpness and the pose of the animal are great.
