Chinese Mantis, male

Tenodera sinensis


I caught this mantis late at night, and brought him inside to take a few photos, not thinking he would fly around! Well, as soon as I released him in the bathtub, he started flying. Eventually, he seemed content on the top of the bathroom door. I got one good photo and promptly released him.

Okay! I actually went through my spottings and added a bunch to the mission, including this one.
