The camouflaged praying mantis

On my way back from swimming in the outdoor pool last night, I spotted a praying mantis next to the footpath.

It had camouflaged itself in a plant growing in the gravel.

As I watched, it scarcely stayed still at all. It seemed to be trying different positions, including hanging upside down at one point.

I took a large number of photos. In fact I told Clive it was probably the most-photographed praying mantis ever. But this was the only shot that turned out.
