I just love Mantids! This is a nice picture of an adult female Chinese Mantid. Sphodromantis viridis (African Giant Mantis) is not known to occur in North America and looks a bit different from this.Sphodromantis viridis :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mantis...You can see the difference in the body shape and the wings.
