Various shades of brown and would estimate around 4 inches in length. Blended in very well with the weathered concrete in my backyard.
This one was found hanging in my backyard which borders a grassy and wooded area. Our yard is home to a lot of insects...but I'm guessing there are a few less with this gal around.
I didn't notice him until after my dog, Beulah the Border Collie. I've seen several mantis over the couple months. This one seemed on the larger side of all the others. (No animals were harmed in the making of these photographs)
