Very cute! This looks like it could be a mantis from genus Stagmomantis. There are a couple of species in your area. Do you have any views of the head?
Here is a link to the BugGuide page for genus Stagmomantis.

This would be a nice addition to the Marvelous Mantids of the World mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1573...
