Nice job. I love the colors in this shot and spot on focus.

Wow, amazing capture with the dof, I can imagine going crazy rocking backwards and forwards trying to get the focus bang on like this - perhaps you have a slightly better setup though? =)

I can't imagine this not getting a ribbon. I'm moving up a few points.

I like this regardless of the recent bug macro challenge. I hope nobody dings you for that, it would be unfair. :-D I love the clarity and DOF.

Amazing what ma nature puts her insects through, isn't it.
Grand capture of an inevitable ending for some critters.
The dew drops are the 'frosting on the cake.'

If you were below, looking up at the praying mantis, you could have gotten a "monster" big looking insect with a dramatic angle, and also be able to keep it more in focus.

don't know if they have taste buds, but I do - and while it's not yummy for me, it nicely conveys the sense of taste - 8
