Praying Mantis

Another of my Bristol Zoo beasties.

On the one hand this shot was a total failure, I missed focus totally. To be fair the room was very dark and even the f2.8 gave me a slow shutter speed. Which combined with the razor-sharp depth of field the 100mm macro gives…not a technically good image at all.

However, Nik Silver can be savior of some shots.  Add a bit of Nik and we now have a fairly creepy silhouette of a predatory slayer of anything it can, er, slay!


Thanks for looking.
