Great image! what an interesting bug! Nicely imitates sticks and twigs. what happened to its other arm? are they joined together? These are often hard to spot as they nicely blend with their surroundings. critical elements in sharp focus. background looks great after all that cleanup.

The arm maybe is blend with the other one , but if he has  one is not the first time i find a Mantis with a single arm , some times they lose it in battle with other guys , once i found an arm on a leaf and ant was try to eat it !!
