Safely landed on a dead tree branch. I noticed it from a distance and quickly approached him, take a few shots and leave it. This is how it posed to me. Looks like welcoming me

Picture below show an unidentified object in the body of P. sultanus. According to reliable information, perhaps it is Dryinidae attack.

“These are solitary Wasps whose larvae are parasitoids on other insects. The only known hosts are Hemiptera, especially leafhoppers. The eggs are injected into the host using a sharp ovipositor and the larva spends its early stages feeding internally on the host, but when larger, it starts to protrude from the abdomen of the host and develops a hardened sac-like “case” to protect its vulnerable body while continuing to feed on the host, which is eventually killed.”

Leafhopper nymph? My first impression it looks like a Katydid, but its eyes resemble a Mantis. This creature sometimes keep moving from left to right, and right to left exactly mimicking the mantis behaviour
