I didn't know there were purple ones

Twig-like praying mantises are snapped by professional photographer Mehmet Karaca in his hometown in Kahramanmaras, a province in Turkey.  Picture: Mehmet Karaca/Solent News & Photo Agency

From here:

I thought the photographer might have played with the colors so I Googled "Purple praying mantis."  And I found one ... so looks like this pic is real.  Is it just me or are these insects all kinds of spooky?
