Praying Mantis on Hyacinth Bean Flower

Praying Mantis

This Praying Mantis has been hanging out in the corner of our back yard. The first time I spotted him he disappeared while I retrieved my camera.

A few days later I got another chance when I found him nicely posed on a newly opened Hyacinth Bean flower.

He was about half the size of others I have seen, less than 2 inches (5 cm).
