Large, long green insect with triangular head and grasping claspers.
Rural yard with tall herbaceous plants.
Thanks Mr. Goldfish!
Oh, and it looks like a sub-adult female. I can tell from the wings buds and the abdomen.
Not Tenodera sinensis. Probably Stagmomantis carolina because of the way it looks and there are probably no other mantids in that area that look similar to the Carolina Mantis.
