Thank you, Alessandro!!

Creeps me out, but still a great capture, Lois. Vote.

Lois Bryan replied:

Hi Kristin ... sorry about creeping you out ... but I appreciate the visit and the vote very much!!!

I think that's about as close as you can get Lois! It looks like it was inside your lens!!! Very well captured! v/f +++Blessings+++

Lois Bryan replied:

thanks, Cindy!!!

Striking image, Lois! How you just got so close to this creature?! Wonderful macro!

Lois Bryan replied:

Hi Jenny!!!! I was using my macro lens ... and I may have been using my extension tubes, but can't remember for sure.

This is terrific!! I keep wanting to get a good shot of a mantis but no luck so far. You've got a beauty here!

Thanks, Doris!!!!

Wow!!!! Wonderful image!!! V/F

Lois Bryan replied:

Hey Steven, thank you!!!

Unbelievable. !

Lois Bryan replied:

Thanks Ginette!!!

Incredible macro, Lois!!!

Lois Bryan replied:

thanks, Sandi ... i don't know of anything else that aggravates me more than macros outside in nature ... but that can be more rewarding (that 1 in 500 shot that turns out, that is, lol)

Those things are just too weird but faced with one with a camera in my hand I would have wanted to get that close too! Great shot Lois, terrific macro there.

Lois Bryan replied:

Chris, it's that cool macro lens ... never know what I'm going to come up with when I use it!!!

I am totally creeped out, but I love it. V/F

Lois Bryan replied:

HAHAH!!! I know!!!! Thanks, Al!!!!

Wow, superb macro of this mantis, Lois! Love the closeness and the detail of the head. The "eyes" have it! Nice job on this unique piece!

Lois Bryan replied:

Thanks so much, Randy!!!!!

Wow!! Fabulous macro!!

Lois Bryan replied:

thanks, Robin-lee!!

Beautiful Shot Lois ! v/f

Lois Bryan replied:

thank you, Mitch!!!

Wow, love the simplicity and abstractness (is that a word?). Well done, Lois. ;-) f/v

Lois Bryan replied:

Hi Theresa!! Thank you ... and if it isn't ... it should be!! lol!

Wow Lois - what an amazing capture!!! And I love that there's nothing here to focus on BUT this face and these eyes! Incredible!! F/V

Lois Bryan replied:

Thanks Lianne!!!! I had gone out to find some butterflies to shoot, but this guy demanded my attention instead!!!!! Isn't he cute???
