19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This is a praying mantis nymph. My husband bought me potted flowers which we kept on our patio. One morning I noticed this handsome fellow amongst the blooms. He was with us on this plant for a good month and we observed and photographed him to no end.
