Is this a headless something? 4 brown legs. 2 sets of wings — 1 pair bright green and 1 pair brown. Long — 3-4 inches. Looks as if something bit its head off?

Dear Puzzled in Kalamazoo,
This is the second photo we are publishing in a week of a decapitated Preying Mantis. We suspect a bird may have been responsible.
Daniel, thank you so much for identifying this so quickly, and as a praying mantis. Your suspicion is logical, as we have many birds in our yard. Poor guy. Thanks again.
