My favourite Mantis

Howzit everyone, someone liked my pic and suggested I post it here, hope you like it too.

So these little critters have been roaming the garden for ages. The first time I ever saw one was in 1997. They are quite territorial and may stay on the same plant their entire life. Found this little lady down in the “weed pit”. She has been around for about four or five weeks I’d say, based on her size, and she is looking healthy, sitting on Salvia about 2 metres from the beehive, so no shortage of food.
