Tiny Praying Mantis - Mantis religiosa

Tiny Praying Mantis - Mantis religiosa
Medford, Jackson County, Oregon, USA
May 15, 2006
Size: 1cm

Moved from Mantids.

But they are so bad as adults! Pretty safe bet this is going to be the nymph of the European mantis, Mantis religiosa, which has been introduced there and appears to be well-established.

Thanks for the ID. I love mantids. :)
