Weekly Sketch: New Mantis Species

The prompt for this week's sketch was "something that you want to do on your bucket list". I realized that I didn't have a bucket list, but if I had one, this would be the first on the list. I have decided to discover a new species of insect--preferably of the order Mantodea.

This is Hymenopus sumptuosus--mimic-type mantis that lives on iris flowers. It is well-known for its large ruffly crest and thorax.
