NO MANIPULATION. The sweet insect is really there :3

I actually love mantis, and I was superb happy to find it today.

It's was a bit scary since I could see its head as it looked at my eye, I was afraid it would punch me or something in the eyeball!

But voi lá, hope you enjoy it as much I did taking it!

Vaya, hay que tener mucha calma para aguantar ese pedazo de bicho en el ojo. Buf!

I absolutely adore how you integrate animals into your work. I find Praying Mantises to be extremely beautiful, and your make up and facial expression captures them entirely.

Wonderful shot, you should create a G+ account. I see your work all over Google Circles. I looked up your name and I could not find you. I looked for Cristina Otero and Senju Hime. You are not there but your work is all over!

You must have incredible willpower. I can't stand anything close to my eye; I totally flip if something brushes my lashes.

I love it when people love bugs and especially when they are willing to touch them.
The expression here is stunningly beautiful and I love the touches of green on your face. I love your expression too, it looks like a shock, like you were born from the earth awakening for the first time in years. Both you and the mantis are gorgeous models.:blackrose:
