[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Don't know the species, it was the first time a saw one like this.

I believe it's a Empusa pennata (Thunberg, 1815).

This is definately an empusa
(though I'm not sure that this is Empusa pennata)
Note that empusa's are not prying mantis, so the title should be amended.
