A Carolina Mantis in Florida - Stagomantis carolina

The venerable lady was on our wall during the winter solstice. She is a Carolina mantis, Stagomantis carolina). We haven't had a freeze yet this year so a lot of these insects are living to ripe, old ages. This one is missing a front leg.  Go here for photos of a grizzled mantis from our yard.

Carolina Mantis - notice that she is missing one of her front legs
