    I love the size of the flower….and I have to say, I cant help but laugh at this one…He really has an expression on that face…..oops aaaggghhh…it’s like a cartoon. Even the angle of his body is different…great capture Adam, Di

  • Thanks Di, Surprisingly he is facing away from the camera. The two black dots could be his eyes looking back at me, but I’m not sure.

    This is so good. Love the use of the flower in the bokeh. Mantids are some of my favorite insects being that they are so alien looking. Excellent shot, Adam.

  • Thanks. It’s a very alien setting.
