Praying mantis discovered in the back yard

My daughter and husband were playing in the back yard and discovered this praying mantis. My husband encouraged the insect to climb onto this branch for a unique photo opportunity. Living in North Carolina, we are fortunate our yard has allowed our daughter to experience a diversity of wildlife.
