[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I saw this beautiful mantis on a plant in ambush waiting to hunt a prey. As soon as I approached near, it hid behind a leaf. Once in a while , it just bought its face above the leaf to see if I have gone. It literally felt like a naughty kid hiding from its parent and watching what they do.
