A uncommon friend on our door step

Like every year when the weather in Autumn gets colder, many insects try to hide away and look out for places where the sun still arrives and where they are hidden from the chilly wind. Our doorstep is towards the south and also in winter the sun warms it up. It is our place to keep the lemons and other vulnerable plants over the winter. And each year around this time insects also try to hide away here. This one is particularly interesting, the praying mantis. I’m sure he noticed me making some pictures. It was as if he or she was looking at me. I wonder whether they actually survive the winter?
