Now that's quite the head spine. It kind of looks like an exotic druid hat. This mantis kind of looks like the wicked sorcerer type to me. Maybe that cunning mantis pose and slender, angular features really make it look up to no good.

Great photo, I really like how detailed you got its stripy eyes. Nice shot!
