    It is the Mantodea, also known as the Praying Mantis.  Praying mantis’ are related to grasshoppers and crickets, belonging to a family of insects called orthoptera (http://www.itsnature.org/ground/creepy- … g-mantis/. 
    Another very strange bug is the Stick Insect or "Walking Stick," known as Phasmida!

    That's a Praying Mantis. They are great for the garden because they eat many harmful insects. Hope it's a female and she deposits her oblong egg sac in a safe place. Then next spring you'll have hundreds of tiny hungry babies to consume the insect pests.

    Looks like a praying mantis to me. Must be one, since others seem to indentify it as such.

    It's a Praying mantis, and I think that there are even laws that prevent people from killing them.
