I've never seen a mantis that's such a gorgeous buff tan before, with those faded green limbs, just wow. I caught a video of it swaying territorially before running straight up the drain pipe into an old bird's nest. See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9X6aMJTY...
Found on the siding of our house in a forested residential area, behind ornamental trees and near ivies.
