That Little Red Hiding Mantis

Reddish small mantis seemed interested in being photographed even though we are very noisy around it that it could scurry away any time (but it did not).


From Mantodea order of insects (Mantidae family). This one is a typical praying mantis with its usual "prayer" like stance. If you look closely, the eys of mantises look like they have pupils (but according to wiki, they just have compound eyes).
