Amusing and amazing! A very laconic shot: you only show what's necessary leaving the background heavily blurred.

What an encounter! I like this original image. Mantises are amazing insects, like some wild visitors from outer space.

Superb capture of this mantis. Great shot on that bike mirror.
Did he felt in love with itself ? haha

Brilliant shot Jusni. I find Mantis a smart insect. I have few shots of em recently :-). Have a great day my friend.
Not bad work Jusni, although I have to disagree with the others - I don't think it's brilliant.
It's a good subject and an interesting, original capture of it. But I find the lighting is a little low and there is not much detail on its head ...
I also find the composition is not good, you've managed to put the most important part of the photo in the very middle of the frame, which just sucks away a lot of its dramatic potential.
Perhaps a different - closer - crop and a boost in levels would have helped improve this one?
Forgive the honesty my friend, I enjoy watching your work improve but I don't think that can happen if all people ever say is "great shot."

Good morning Jusni,
A most unconventional framing of the mantis which I like very much. The space around it does not bother me as I prefer some 'breathing room' when viewing close up images. After reading Rew's comments, I would have to agree that sharpness and details on the head can be boosted a tad. Nonetheless, this is a superb image and I am glad that you posted it. Best regards, Danilo
He probably believes its another mantis and wants to fight it off.We had a cardinal bird who for several days would spend quite a bit of time pecking at our car mirror while screeching. Finally gave it up when he saw he could not win.

a very humorous shot of smart praying mantis on the round mirror,
maybe it didn't know that reflected image is itself,
composition and colors are beautiful, especially its green body is well captured,
thank you for your excellent shot,
