I absolutely LOVE this image. It could be partly because I'm partial to Mantises since I keep one as a pet. However, the colors are awesome and the premise is very cool. I wish for a touch more DOF in the Mantis. I am not certain it would be an improvement, but I would be interested to see the flower/Mantis were to the right of the image as opposed to the left as something very, very slight in the composition is leaving me uncomfortable. The blue in the background could pop more as it would contrast nicely to the orange, but that may distract from the insect, so I'm not certain that would be an improvement either, but maybe something to play with. Extremely nice image as is, however.

Almost looks like it's doing yoga or something of the sort. I am amused.

Wow! Sharp Mantis, beautiful color on the flower, and smooth sky bokeh. And a nice/appropriate title too! Nicely done.
