Thanks for the inspiration!
Wonderful work… so delicate and fresh looking!
Outstanding shot, great details.
What magnificent light – both cool and somehow exotic, with that bright red and the model-like pose of the mantis.
Wowww, wonderful capture!!!! Gorgeous colors, DoF and detail!!!!
This is so cool, Rick!
Fan dancer! Light, color is spectacular!! Like the amazing movies of the 40’s, this star is utterly amazing!
Thanks Diane. A deadly dancer.

And there we have it, my favourite for the day so far! Outstanding work!
Great work! Well done.
Fabulous capture, Is this a young praying mantis, it looks so brittle and transparent?! You are a master with words as well, wonderful!
