Stalking

There is a Chinese idiom called "Tángláng bǔ chán huáng què zài hòu"(螳螂捕蟬,黃雀在後), the story behind is that a mantis stalks one cicada in the forest, but it is unaware of the oriole behind. The meaning behind is that people are always too focus on things they want to see, but ignore things around, hence pursue a narrow gain. Two of my friends, and a deer are captured in the photo, which was taken last year in Richmond Park, London. It is definitely a funny version of "Tángláng bǔ chán huáng què zài hòu".
