BC, some of praying mantises are quite big. If the one pictured is naturally big than the picture is possible. We had one in our yard that was close to 4"
Not that species: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creobroter_gemmatus and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flower_mantis
Wikipedia says 3.8 - 4 cm And as it raised it's legs as threatening gesture, so the lens was close. I have a 60 mm macro and I'd say the transition between sharp structures on the stone and blurred parts happens too sudden to be only the DoF of an aperture.
