I went for my usual morning walk with my camera in my backpack for the "just in case I come across something interesting during my walk". As I was climbing the slope. I chanced upon this tiny Praying Mantis sitting on a tapioca leaf. It is also one of my favorite insects to photograph as I can with patience coax the insect to pose for me. While I was engrossed with the tiny mantis, the mossies extracted their usual payment but the photos were worth it for me.
