Gonatista grisea, a mantis, seen in the Rio Abajo forest, Puerto Rico
A friend, Alberto Alvarez, noticed this mantis had come into one of the Department of Natural and Environmental resources buildings in the forest. We took photos of the insect and after that firmly but in a gentle manner, invited the mantis to leave the inside of the building and return to the forest. We were successful in this. No mantis were harmed during the taking of these photos.
