Found sitting on the wall of a restaurant in the city.
I found this mantis sitting on a restaurant in the middle of the city. The mantis would of died if it stayed there, so i picked him up, and put him in the car. Dad drove to the forest, where i wanted to let the mantis go. I carried the mantis in a burger container, before letting him go in the middle of the forest. The mantis flew up in a tree.
