I believe this to be a Chinese Mantis. I thought he was quite photogenic.

This Mantis is immature and identification of immature individuals is often more difficult than the identification of mature adults. The wing pads do appear to have a green edge, so we believe your identification of an immature Chinese Mantis is correct.
