I'm looking really close, but i can't see it,
mind you i'm really bad at that sort of thing - i can't even see faces in clouds that others see quite easily lol

It is still there, look between the feelers and there are two eyes and a nose

if you still cant see it, the obvious remedy would be to have a few glasses of wine and look again lol lol
oh and i cant see things in clouds either, although hubby reckons he can see cloaked Klingon vessels ! ! !( just waiting for the men in white coats for him )

Gary - without a glass of wine, I can see the little face on the mantid's forehead - it's the brown part. You can charge a 2nd sitting fee!

Palms - I love your husband's sense of humor, and will bail him out if he gets picked up by the white coats (blue coats - no, but white coats - yes).

P.S. ... who knows, since they're invisible when cloaked, the Klingon ships could be there...

....Well, let's see... oh, there are two round bumps, next to each other, on his abdomen that do look like eyes...

Nice work - again. Very handsome subject - getting her portrait done for her babies - since they'll never meet her?

Gary, remarkable bugs
Welcome, Penny
Palms - what the new thing that you learned about your camera that you needed a tripod?

I'm busy working through our holiday pictures. Here's one from Clanmacnoise (an abbey ruin)
