I think this is a female European Mantis? She is looking at me, probably thinking what kind of creature is that?! lol

Hello Dijana,
By the size of its abdomen I would say you are probably right about it being a female. It is not very common to find one in the grass like this, they usually like thick vegetation in which to hide in ambush. The focus appears sharp and colors are true and natural. It looks quite similar to the ones we have here in Ohio.
