Sphodromantis viridis is a species of praying mantis that is kept worldwide as a pet.
Visiting our balcony.
Yes, I can imagine! I think mantises are great posers! Very photogenic, and (often) seem to keep still - as though they like you to take as many photos as possible... :-)
Thanks Ann! Making this pictures was very funny for me; when the mantis saw me, it stopped moving
