Photographers Comment

I thank the judge for giving me the mark of excellence. I am wildlife photographer Professional in France and I live in Boulange en Moselle. I realized this picture with a Nikon D 810 camera and a macro lens Nikon 100mm 2.8 VR. This mantis was placed on the branch of a fir tree to wash. I waited for this moment to trigger or she held her antenna to clean it.
