Mantis eating Leaf Creature

Hello Bugman. I thought your great web site might like to see this shot I took of a Mantis snacking on some kind of leaf look-a-like insect. I almost passed right by them.
This is in a “Lum Yai” fruit tree in Northern Thailand.
Love your site!
Northern Thailand in foothills.
Thanks for sending us your wonderful Food Chain images. Since our site migration a few months back, our readership is now able to click on the smaller image to enlarge and your photos really demand this closer inspection. We believe your leaf creature is a Phasmid known as Phyllium siccifolium. Bugsincyberspace.com has some nice images of living individuals.
