Spooky Jungle Mantis

A Flower Mantis (Creobroter sp.) from Danum Valley, Malaysia. I spotted this female mantis sitting on some leafs while hiking in Malaysian Borneo. Judging from the size I think this must have been a female, she was very alert and was clearly watching me for the duration of our photoshoot, turning to look directly at me no matter where I moved.
