Origami Praying Mantis

[Intermediate] How to fold an origami Praying Mantis whose head rotates 180°! I used 6-inch kami but I would recommend using at least a 10-inch square. Other more complex origami mantises include antennae but I chose to design my praying mantis by excluding the antennae because on the real praying mantis the antennae are so thin that I think that it is the head not the antennae that most captures the essence of the praying mantis. I didn't want it to be possibly mistaken for some other insect. I've shown this model a few times in my juggling/origami shows and my audience members were able to recognize it as a praying mantis. I think this tutorial very followable but I do apologize for the little blurriness in some of the up close shots. I didn't notice it while looking into the camera's viewfinder. I probably should have used 10-inch kami or just not have zoomed in so much. I'll keep that in mind for the future. Here are some ways to support me to make more awesome origami videos: 1.
