Fairy Mantis – Tanoumah

There are a number of different mantis species in Saudi Arabia and when I was birdwatching in Tanoumah with Phil Roberts we found a different type that we had not seen before. After help from Mansur Al Fahad and looking on the internet it became obvious the species was a Fairy Mantis Oxyothepis nilotica. It was not easy to photograph with the below photos the only good one I got.
