Brown Praying Mantis = male 3+ inches
A friendly insect, I found him hanging around in a conifer----- he has since disappeared. There was a female around.......
Thank you to Kate for her UA--
IMHO top class a gh capture .. really !
Intelligence from outer space - this critter would be perfect for sci-fi drama!
Perfect detail, wonderful.
Well spotted, great detail
Like the title for this inquisitive mantis, Jenn: excellent detail and the head so well illuminated.
Smashing image, it's so cute.
Have been toying with a purchase of the D800, the quality here has made up my mind, awesome capture Jenn.
Quite astonishing Jenn. Superb work.
Not surprised he disappeared Jenn,
with a female around !!
Well lit and coloured.
No wonder Trevor wants to buy that camera,
You certainly know how to make the most of it with
one fantastic image after another.
What a great shot, Jenn. As I found with my brown preying mantis a week or so ago, they always look at the lens, with a look of great intelligence. But this, what an image, a great macro portrait. I am jealous.
Fabulous, Jenn Carol
I love the way these guys look straight at you. Wonderful shot.
Quote: I love the way these guys look straight at you. Wonderful shot.
Superb macro work...well done
A stunning macro capture Jennn.
Excellent capture Jenn !
You've been framed...
The colours are irresistible, but the important thing for me is the composition/low viewpoint/angle. The way the antennae explore the top of the frame. My picture of the day - already!
It doesn't need a whole rhetoric... Stunning will suffice.
Lovely colours and a cute face.
Lovely detailed shot Jenn and what a pose, saw one of these during a short holiday in Spain, hope my version does it justice as yours has,
They are a strange insect for sure. I just saw a rather bizarre documentary on their sex life!!!!!!
Excellent detailed capture Jenn. Also, super pose.
This is absolutely amazing, Jenn.
Take me to your leader immediately.......
My o my what big eyes you have, and captured to perfection I might add, congrats on the awards well deserved I say .
Just wonderful detail
Great shot Jenn. Stunning detail.
Stunning capture, great details, beautiful pose!
A splendid shot
Makes one smile
What a wonderful portrait! Well deserving all those awards.
My goodness...SENSATIONAL macro, Jennnn. The focus is incredible and the colours just go *POP* too!
Superb Jennn - excellent composition.
Well hello. I do find these quite creepy but there is no doubt that this is a very fine close-up.
Amazing capture, Jenn, I'm only sorry that I have used my User Award!!!
Wow fantastic shot Jenn. Cathy
I'm always amazed at the subjects you find and how they seem to pose for you. Excellent!
You know, Jennn, this is one of my favorite insects! And it is taken simply amazingly good!
Wonderful clarity and pin sharp detail in this impressive macro Jenn, he looks fairly compos mantis to me!
What a great & colourful composition Jennnnnnn. His throat matches the colour of the small flowers of the pine xxx
Absolutely awesome portrait Jenn, it is really sweet and cool at the same time, just like Santa Teresas are. In Venezuela, the indigenous name is "cerbatana".
Wow -- now this is a macro.
