I found this outside my front door this morning. Its December 7th and we live near Tampa Florida. Its been unusually warm this past week although we getting a child front in tomorrow. When I got home from work it was still in the same place. I don’t know if its some type of mantis or beetle? I looked through over 300 pictures to find what it was but couldn’t find it. I would love your help. Thank you!

Dear Olga,
Though your image is lacking in critical clarity, it inarguably represents a Grizzled Mantis or Florida Bark Mantis.
