There are 2300 Praying Mantis species on mother earth. Some Praying Mantis have wings and can fly from bush to bush and some do not. According to the on-line Britannica "other names for the Praying Mantis are Mantidae; mantis; praying mantid; praying mantis".
This post shows this praying mantis and how it was found laying on the hot asphalt driveway and what was done to find this Mantis a safe harbor so it can continue to populate its species.
About two weeks after the summer of 2014 several praying mantis started showing up around my home. Fig.1 and fig.2 shows the same Praying Mantis on a brown wood bench.
