Nice one, Igor! Is this real or photoshopped?Did they eat each other afterwards? :)
I’m speechless. That’s absolutely incredible. I’d love to know how much of that image has been worked on as well.
Great shot !!Nature’s version of the old “Rock-em Sock-em Robots” toy.
fantastic work what was the out come ?
The the scene was shot in my home “studio”; I used a piece of cardboard I had painted some impressionistic blobs on – apart from curves and a bit of vignette I added in PS, the image is as it was.
The mantises didn’t attack each other – I was hoping for some threatening displays but they showed no interest.
Glad you like it, thanks for comments.
OMG! incredible image… did you really witness this or create it??? either way – it’s amazing!
