Cone Head Mantis 3

By fishiee
Another stunning Cone Head Mantis from Province last spring. This time a grey colour form!

Just arrived for 2 weeks in the Algarve and have read they get them here so have my eyes peeled. Not exactly the best location for wildlife where we are but plan to explore lots with the car and hope to get to some good beaches for the wife with dome more undeveloped habitst I can explore. Have these, monarch butterflies and chameleons on the target list!

Looks like a skeleton of a dinosaur in miniature. Excellent find and capture.
