Shy Mantis

A newborn little mantis standing on Matrimony organize its own front foot. It is hiding in Matrimony filamentous petals, petals just can withstand its light weight body. I am waiting for its head to face my moment. When I captured this moment is, I think like a shy little kid praying mantis. It licked his fingers at me shy. Behind it was a blue sky, we humans and small mantis has the same blue sky, we are all children of the earth.
