I liked the sharpness and angle of the mantis in the other image, but youngest liked the negative space surrounding the mantis and the curve of the antenna in this one. So...up go both! After moving from plant to plant, with this irritating insect paparazzi following, the mantis did settle down for a bit of antennae and face cleaning. I liked the curve of the antenna as it pulled it through for combing.
Super shot. Fav

Hello April, I am your "get pushed 217" partner. I have looked through your amazing photos, you are clearly an accomplished photographer. I notice that your shots are mainly very clear, defined pictures so my challenge is to find a way to represent the concept of "chaos". Good luck and enjoy! I look forward to seeing your image.

Ok I definitely have a thing for your bug shots - I also happen to love a good praying mantis shot and your composition and the graceful antennae make it an awesome one!
