This little creature belongs to the family of the mantises. Generally, mantises protect themselves by camouflage and concealment. The one you can see on the picture looks like a dry leaf. If it had been sitting on a bush, I would not have been able to see it. But it sat next to me on a bench after a jungle track – I guess it wanted to say “hi, look at me”.
This little insect reminded me how amazing our world is and how many fascinating and surprising wonders we can discover every day.
