Flower Mantis

I saw this lovely flower mantis at Endau Rompin, Selai in 2004. :thumbsup: I have not seen another one in my subsequent trips to Endau Rompin and other forests in Malaysia. The Butterfly Park in Penang has a flower mantis display but it is not the same as seeing them in their hatural habitat.
