A nice set, Nikola. :D

I'll go with pic #3 of these #1's background strikes me as a bit busy, and #2 has a bit of leaf right in front of the face.

Ah, but #3... What the prey sees, just before becoming lunch! :shock:

I appreciate that being small is a part of her charm. :lol:
Fortunately, as like other insects, they have exoskeleton, open circulatory system and specific respiratory system so laws of physics doesn't allow them to develop (easily) really big proportions. Thanks to their evolutionary past, they turned in some directions that ended up limiting the size they could efficiently attain.
Evolutionary redesigning goes in small steps so we are safe for a while. :lol:

I agree with Rik. #3 ist the standout. The closeness gives it a presense. The framing isolates the face and emphasises the eyes; and the simplicity keeps the focus where you want it . Well done, Nikola.
:D

Regards.

Don`t you people know, this is Nikola`s trained praying mantis. He raised it from a young critter, so now it poses for him every chance it gets. :wink: I do like # 3.

Thanks folks! :D
By the way, did you notice (#3) shadows of antennae falling across her "falling in love" expressive eyes? :lol:
She looks so ... so ... ahh ... :smt060 ... relaxed!
Just look at those loose antennae! 8)
