Praying Mantis Silhouette

Praying mantis (Mantis religiosa)
This praying mantis (Mantis religiosa) was inside on our kitchen trash can lid. He would have had to wait there a long time before he would be able to reach out those long spiny arms to capture an insect (I hope). So we moved him outside but not before letting him pose on the lid and then running up and down my arm. This silhouette makes him look so big but he was very young and quite small, about one inch long.
