Each one stands out in its own way. All very nicely done. I agree with photolady95. The 4th shot of the mantis looking straight at the camera is my favorite.

I agree number four is a great shot, and the lighting on the first one is nice also.

Thaks guys, it was a good model to work with. Very cooperative but also a bit moody

Wonderful shots. I like the first and fourth the best too but I wouldn't mind to have taken any of them.
