This praying Mantis was large in size. At least 3 to 4 inches long and brownish in color. i have usually seen green colored mantises. So this is something new for me. it was large enough to bring down a hummingbird or even a lizard.It probably was under the deck since I could see cob webs on it. (pic2 and 3). http://bugguide.net/node/view/609955
. Mantises take on green or brown shades to blend in with the background.
