Sorry if I didn't make it clear: I meant to make the background black. Still a great picture!

that is truly a beautiful pic....even if the background is photoshopped thats still amazing talent to get the mantis up close and personal like that...Its like ur right there and not even looken at the pic. You have my vote for photo of the month.

 

and if it is photoshopped...nice job blending the mantis into the background so that is some skill right there to

 

 

edit: thanks for the new background image :)

Great pic, and thanks for the wallpaper, hehe. You got my vote, until someone posts a harlequin shrimp, then you may have some competition =).

you obviously don't know what Photoshop is capable of, in skilled hands it can make anything look real......this image is highly photo "chopped", yes it does look awesome, but it's nothing like any of the other non-photochopped pictures and therefore should be disqualified unless the rules allow computer generated/altered images, i dont think thats what the contest was intended for....

cheers for all the comments - the mantis was coming out of a cave in the shot so the black area is original. I have removed a couple of bits of rock from around the perifery of the image though as they didn't add anything to the shot. The colour isn't enhanced I might add. It was the most colourful peacock mantis I have ever seen!

nice shot, but it is photoshoped. good work none-the-less. But it's also not a shrimp.
