Light & dark brown; nymph as it still did not have fully developed wings. Waved forelegs as aproached.
Most likely a bush dweller.
Found this little guy ontop the kitchen faucet. As soon as it saw me it started waving it's forelegs. Had not seen this behaviour with other mantises I had found, so checked the peculiar act online and found out that Boxer Mantids do this; any identification on the exact species would be great! The second pic is after I put it out in the garden on a bush. Would like to see this type again sometime!
