Hi Sebastien,
wow, I've never seen a mantis - and this one is waiting for you on your car?!? What great luck. This shot is a little mystic - seems as she's praying against the sun.
The background is a little noisy, I'll try to reduce this in a Workshot, have a look, perhaps you like it.
A warm welcome here on TN, have a pretty time.

Nice shot, good composition, the scene was set up really well.

The focus is a bit soft.

Well captured and nice reflection.
