wow amazing photos everyone!! :clap: :clap:

kreetja, what an awesome photo!! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: It looks like a eyed-flower mantid (Pseudocreobotra wahlbergi). They come in a variety of pinks, mottled browns and greens. One of the distuinguishing features is the lateral projections on their abdomen.
