Showing a picture of 'praying mantis'

By melody:
Here's a full grown mantis in late summer.I'm assuming this one is a female,as she is quite large...6 inches or better. Her color turns more brown as the leaves start to dry and wither.This is so she'll blend in. This particular mantis wasn't a bit afraid of the camera and looked me over carefully.My hand was only a centemeter out of the shot by her leg holding down a leaf.
