What's with all the 0.5 votes?
What a beautiful shot, congrats! But the little one looks like he is bleeding. I hope he's not hurt??
Very few mantids in my area the past couple of years... :-(
There's something strange about this photo. Why is the flowers to the left in perfect focus while the leaves are totally OOF?
Good one Ruth, congrats! It hurts just to look at this image ;-)
Beautiful shot ANAYV!
Very nice. Lesser Pandas are soooooo much cuter than the giants.
Fun challenge. Some very clever titles here.
Very pretty shot. Congrats.
Wow thank you very much for your votes!
Nice shot Stevie!
Do you mean Lilies in general or Water Lilies?
This makes me laugh every time I see it.
Somebody gave this a 0.5 vote.
Excellent shot, with a bridge camera too.
Anadrol: It's also unbelievable that some people rated it 2 ! Such a masterpiece !
When I first saw this image, I had a slight doubt about it being a composite image. I eventually decided it was not and voted high. I wonder if others had the same doubt.
Great capture. I've witnessed similar events too. The heron will hold the prey under water until it is dead so he can swallow it. Terrifying birds!
