Hi Bugman,
Could you identify this insect that spent the day on my screen enclosure in Central Florida? Thank you!

Dear Lorraine,
The Grizzled Mantis is not an uncommon insect in Florida, but because of its excellent camouflage the Grizzled Mantis is easily overlooked, especially when it rests in its typical habitat, moss and lichen covered tree bark.
