Orchid Mantis

Flower Mantises are a species of Praying Mantis that mimic the flowers that they live and hide among. Their legs, wings, and other body parts take on the look of the foliage and flower petals. The Orchid Mantis is found in the rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia and Malaysia, and look like the orchids and frangipani flowers found there.
