They have to be the best set of poses I've seen, absolutely brilliant Carol.

great set of images.
I could be wrong of cause but think this is a young mantis, as it doesn't seem to have its wings form yet. Judging by the stance its formed you would of had a really good display as they unfold their wings and look very spectacular.
Think I like v2 best well seen and captured

Superb captures, all four of them, but V1 is particularly amusing and I love your title which is perfect for it! Strange looking creature - looks rather like a runner bean on legs Wink.
