Bulls eye
I held this mantis a few weeks ago and it had tiny, stubby little wings and a turned up spiky tail. When it returned to my garden I was amazed to see the beautiful markings on its full sized wings.

Now you can see the benefit of the DoF given by bridge and compacts for macro shots. At f4.5 with my macro lens very little would be in focus.
One little compositional matter Cheryl, it is generally better perceived by viewers' eyes, when space is left ahead for the mantis to be able (metaphorically) move into.
Super shot nevertheless

A very good image of the Mantis, the colours and detail in its back are super. I would like to see the head being a bit sharper but still a very good image.
