Beautiful little creature

The Orchid Mantis (Hymenopus coronatus) is called so, because it mimics orchid flowers. They are usually white, but some of them grow little tints of pink over time. They live in papaya trees, orchids and frangipiani trees with flowers in Malaysia, Indonesia & Sumatra. What a photogenic little friend.
