Among the huge members of the insects Praying Mantis is one of the most interesting ones. A number of Praying Mantis is found in or around the Boisa Bill region. This particular image is of INDIAN FLOWER MANTIS(Sc name: Creobroter Gemmatus). Look at the abdomen part- bent upward. It means that  is a juvenile. In this stage they use to mimic scorpion as a way to escape predator. In adult stage they fool the predators by their camouflage. This image is taken from a bush just beside the Boisa Bill. Hope you enjoy the Praying Beauty.
