Albert has raised a small issue here Mehmet. I noticed earlier that your other postings of this image (on DeviantArt and elsewhere) are dated as early as May 9th this year. The PN data is also about where and when the organism was seen (which can give good seasonal and migratory information) so could you please change the 'spotted on' date to something more accurate? Thanks.

Thanks, Mehmet.
Saw the same pic posted at FB too, so its not a current spotting?

Fantastic capture! Since you have the scientific name already, you might want to use a different name for the "common name". If there is not a unique common name you could just say: preying mantis
