A Rare Species of Pray Mantis
WOW, A feast to a Nature Photographer. My daughter Priyanka spotted this. Thanks Abhay Ghanekar for the ID. Took lots of shots with different angles-poses, Took video also. One can not spot this in the actual habitat.

Nice. It is an Orchid Mantis but not rare, though uncommon in certain areas.
