Ooooh! Very cool. I wish we had mantises around here. Your next challenge: film one striking at something. I routinely feed the water striders in our backyard pond by stunning mosquitoes and dropping them (still twitching) in front of the striders. They're quite happy to take the bait! Maybe you can do something similar, I'm not sure how picky mantises are.

Very nice job!
