Mantis (Nicaragua)

Description:

praying mantis at a wildlife reserve.

Habitat:

dry tropical forest; rainy season

Notes:

I saw pictures that looked like the Iris oratoria. from my reading it certainly appears to be in the order of Mantodea. As for the family. I should suspect that it is the Mantidae. But I am not quite sure, and willing to listen to advice.
