In my rubber-plantation, where I spotted the Two-tailed spider, I also spotted this Mantis. I was investigating the bark of that tree, to control the rubber tapping, when I saw something on the bark. Being used to the spiders I did not look well, but when it moved I realized it was not a spider and had a better look. I went to the house and got my camera with macro lens, tried for at least 30 minutes to get shots: either the lens would not focus, as the difference between Mantis and bark was too narrow, or the Mantis decided to move to the other side of the tree.... Anyway, I managed this shot of the what I call Grey Mantis. I'm fascinated by the camouflage features of this insect, absolutely great!
