insects, mosquitos

question #527

Recently a friend of mine took a picture of what he thought was a grasshopper out at his camp far from city life. I later took a look at his close-up picture and I'm no bug expert but I'd be willing to bet the farm that is was some form of Praying Mantis. Up to this point I was under the belief that no Mantids lived anywhere near Thunder Bay, Ontario. Could this insect be a form of Praying Mantis?
