I loved this shot! I thought it was looking into a mirror of sorts, never dreamed it would be thought illegal. Nice, nice shot!

This is a great shot. I gave it a 9. I think you deserved a better rank. Congrats on this superb shot.

I don't really see how anyone would think of two's and three's, yet seven voters did, apparently without explaining why. The 4 and 5 vote, I'm speculating, may have come from those who detected something in this shot they didn't expect and were threatened by it?-

The graph, however, shows that not all is lost, vonautsch. ;-)

Hmmm...30th overall. Well, at least I didn't get any 1's on this.

Wow that is VERY cool. What kind of mirror is that? Great how it makes the Mantis look bigger.

Wow, that's cool! I take it that's an enlarging mirror you've introduced? Nice effect - I'm amazed you could do it without the mantis leaving. Good idea, and nicely executed.

If this was focused a bit more I'd have given it a 10. It's nice to see something creative.

One of the most creative insect image in the challenge. Nice way to show the Mantis from two different angles

Ok, really impressed with this one ..... but I have to ask how did you manage that? Care to share?

Very very good photo. Now how did you ever find two that were talking to one another.

Would have been better, IMO, if the body had been captured in full.
