Lovely! Do you have any other views of this mantis? The purple on the femora and lack of stripes on the face could indicate that this is a European Mantis (Mantis religiosa). I don't feel comfortable saying that is the species definitely though.

Praying Mantis...!!
Their form changes in colour as per environmental shade.... This one is suitable for greenery and humid climate and weather.
