All those triangle motifs:- the petals, the antennae, the head.
Quite an exceptional shot. (Just seeing this for the first time.) ;-Þ

Great image - though I think the composition may have been more appealing if it was rotated CC 90 degrees.

Peek-A-Boo :)
Great point of view here. The back/side lighting really works well on this!

excellent work. could do without the border, as it detracts from an otherwise perfect photo.

it's a rare macro I give a 7 to, but this is a dynamic composition and an expressive subject.

What a wiered critter.
I think the colour suits the image
Fantastic

Excellent - a new favorite for me! It's original, not the typical landscape, the color is vivid. Not crazy about the border, but I never am, and it doesn't hurt the shot at all.

Very interesting composition. His feeler makes the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 09:13:13 PM
Not real jazzed about the frame color, but then again, the frame really doesn't make the shot. Nice focus on the subject matter. (7)

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 01:49:50 PM
maybe a tad tighter on the mantis, and not so centered.

The border is somewhat distracting. It doesn't compliment the image.
