    Nice mantids. We only have two here and both are invasive. Your second photo is possibly an invasive for you as well. It is either a Chinese Mantid or European Mantid. A quick look at the trusty field guide leads me to think that it's likely the European Mantid due to the color patterns. That one may actually range to Malaysia - I'm not sure about it's native range on the other side of the world! Nice shots.
