Hi Kathy and welcome to Project Noah! You have started your collection with one of my favorite types of insects!

Do you happen to have any more views of this beauty? For future spottings you should consider trying to get as many angles as you can to help with identification. Many organisms are similar looking but have distinct markings or shapes on certain areas of the body (or plant parts, etc.) that will help to ID your find!

Here is a link to a good online guide, (specifically the page that gives you all the Mantid Families). Hopefully, you can find yours there!
