A lovely and strong rule of thirds composition. You have certainly become a strong asset here at DPC. Congratulations on your top twenty finish.

Think brightening/upping the contrast with curves would do wonders for this shot, also a bit grainy for my taste but the composition and stance of the Mantis are very good, had the image quality been better there is no knowing what I would given but this got a 6 from me.

Very nice tones and color, the mantis blends in so well he almost goes unnoticed. Well done!

I love the composition and contrast between curves and straight lines but I think this could be lighter
