Looks like a species from genus Tenodera. This one is a nymph but close to becoming an adult. You can see the cute little wingpads on the side of the abdomen.
Very likely a Chinese Mantis, Tenodera sinensis: http://bugguide.net/node/view/386/bgpage...

Please consider adding this to the Marvelous Mantids of the World mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1573...
