Arizona Mantis (Stagmomantis limbata)

Origin: North America
Sighted at: My apartment @ Hill Country, Austin, TX

A big, brawny mantis – the first I’ve ever seen in the wild, I’m pretty sure – that I spotted at my apartment this past December! He was in a great hurry to go somewhere – I assume he was running late – but I managed to catch a nice still of him just the same.
