Praying Mantis - Mantis religiosa

By Mendipman  
Taken in the early morning near the village of Cantobre in the Cevennes national park, France.

I had seen one on the first full day there but it wasn't until the very end of the holiday that I managed to find one to photograph, they have so much character and very amenable when being photographed.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Crab Spider and especially to Bonnieville (Robin) for your valued user award, so very much appreciated.
