This flower stick insect really does
look like a small flower and is common to gardens
and grasslands. Flower
mantids are mostly found in light colors such as
light green and various shades of pink. They resemble
flowers so remarkably that insects
often land on them to get nectar, but to no avail.
The mantis thrusts its pincher-like forelegs forward
to catch its prey when they come into close
range thinking its a flower.
