Orchid mantis

By Angi_Wallace    
Combining my creative macro with pet portraiture. This is my male Orchid preying mantis - he is about 1.5 cms long now, males only grow to 2.5 cms whilst females can grow up to 6 cms.
I usually shoot pet portraits with more depth but chose a shallower depth of field to obtain this colourful bokeh.

Beautiful, love the pastels with the stronger colors of the bokeh.
