Encore une belle macro made in Didier ;-) Les mantes me fascinent aussi... Beau contraste des jolies couleurs sur le fond sombre. Luminosité intéressante. Bonne profondeur de champ. Compliments et merci.

Ps : j'ai remis sur le forum mes états d'âme et un proposition...

Hi Didier, wonderful macro on the Praying Mantis. It looks quite strange in that light, and the pink makes it look like he has a halo around his head. Good clarity and details. Well done.
Ekrem/Eko's workshop looks good too with the photo turned 90 degrees. Makes it look totally different.

Hi Didier,
this is a wonderful mantis, I also like to see one "live" but not in my garden. I would run away, a little frightened. She's looking so majestic and the background is phantastic, like in a cathedral. Very impressing.
Also excellent DOF and the perfect POV.
Thanks a lot for sharing

Bonsoir Didier,
J'aimerais bien en voir une un jour mais je ne crois pas qu'elle vive au Canada ??? Insecte d'une grande beauté elle ne laisse personne indifférent!
Jolies couleurs et belle présentation, la lumière est tout à fait splendide,

Bon week-end,

Hello Didier, Good sharpness and colors. Well composed with a great POV (I like this view of the head & details). The OOF colors in the BG add good color to the frame IMO. Well done.

Greta shot Didier
Very busy night again!!
No time to read notes, but enough time to enjoy your post.
Have a good week. TFS
