Truly magnificent Brian! Really WOWS!
Nice and close on this one Brian.

Cool capture, love that eye. Happy weekend, Brian!
Whoa, perfect shot! The clarity in your images is always stellar.
Super shot Brian!
Marvelous. Why am I reminded of Hitchcock?
Great shot Brian!
love the light glancing off his pate! awesome beak, too!
Intensity for sure, fab shot!
Wow - intense and lovely!
I love the black and white eye.
A great photo!
You must have thrilled ! What a great shot!
Intense is a good title. Love how the rainbows glint of those feathers.
Wow, those eyes are horror film makings! You did great with this shot, hate doing all black birds (or critters). Woop! (from the perve in MT - hahaha bet you thought I missed that)
"I didn't do it. Nope I didn't do it." hee hee that is what it looks like he is thinking. Great close up!
Wow! What an intense pose! The detail of feathers colours, beak and eye are magnificent!
These are great looking birds - I have only seen them once - and I was in a moving car at the time!!My daughter and I found another big mantis in the garden yesterday - but it shot off before I could get any pictures.Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.Stewart M - Melbourne

This image, literally, takes my breath away!!! WoW
Great close up!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Gorgeous shot! Beautiful colours on his head.
What a great shot!!! It amazes me how close you can get to capture these shots!!!
talk about evil eye, WoW!!
Great shot, Brian. It almost looks more like the "Bronzed Grackle" we had back in Texas and New Mexico rather than our Florida "Purple Grackles."
Amazing shot! I love how clear that eye is.
Don't you wish you could master that stare? :-) Could you tell what had its attention? But never mind what, it kept him still long enough for you to get this personality-filled closeup.
