I very nearly missed this one sitting in the bush because it blended in so well with the surroundings. You can very gently tap the legs and the Mantis will "box" with you, quite a cool little insect but I left it alone after a few minutes of taking photo's, so as not to disturb it too much and let it get on with it's hunting.
I have a few more photos of this one, which I will share once processed.
