Missoula, Missoula County, Montana, USA August 11, 2006 Size: 1 inch long
This thing looks like a cross between a wasp and a preying mantis. Tiny triangular head and long folding forelegs like a mantis. Legs, abdomen, and wings like a wasp. In this picture the forelegs are folded, but are almost an inch long when extended.
