Cracking image Bob. Love the lighting. Who knows about ET and how long they may have been around?

Terrific thinking and planning to execute this outstanding image. He looks like he's the angel of death and his prey is in trouble.

From the look of this, they have definitely landed, Bob. Very dramatic view of this backlit mantis and beautifully done!
