definitely the hardest praying mantis to expose for IMO.

For sure! White on black?!?
Would have been a good vertical orientation shot - you've just cropped off his antennae.
Tough shot.

Yeah, its hard keeping the whites and blacks in check when shooting this little guy. Personally, the shots where I kept the entire antennas in the frame did not look nearly as good, mainly because of all the dead space above the insect. Again, that is IMHO
