Invisi-Mantis

So far this year hasn't been great for mantises; not even the Chinese mantis (most common species). I almost didn't see this one, blending in amongst the flower leaves and weeds in the field. I considered bringing her (I think--still a nymph and I didn't count segments) home as a pet, but there don't seem to be as many mantises as usual this year, so she needs to be free to...make more mantises for next year.
