Such a great macro here, the composition is very good, looks like the Mantis is coming out of its lair.

That mantis is posing just right for you! Awesome. Looks also like it's thinking about eating you after you make the picture. I hope it didn't. ~9

I opened this one up earlier when browsing through before voting and I was pleased that it was as cool as I had hoped from thumbnail. Great detail and excellent DOF. The mantis color is a great contrast the rest of the image and the background and foreground blur really add well. On eof my top picks of the challenge so far. Its too cold where I live for these guys to be hanging out anymore - I am jealous.

This has great DOF and the detail on his face is great. I know how hard it is to capture these guys cause I did it the other day and my shots were horrible. The vivid green is really saturated, but just looks lush and delicious and not overdone. I sense a touch tight on the crop, as his leg is "cut off" just a smidge.

The Mantis' body really drops off that it looks fake. The rest of the picture is wonderful.
