The praying mantis attempts looking like a stick to camouflage from both it's predators and prey. He mimics foliage blowing in the wind when he moves by swaying and rocking back and forth.

I had one last year at about the same time too. I think my plants attract the right bugs for them at the end of summer!

And thank you very much!
