Mantid on the beach

Giant mantis (Hierodula spp.)
Wandering along the beach after breakfast a mantid, about 8cm long, caught my eye just above the water line. I think it must have fallen into the water and been washed ashore, where it was drying off. After a quick photo I returned it to the safety of a Terminalia tree.
