These tiny larvae are praying mantis pictured only a minute after hatching. At first glance, it looked like a collection of dried leaves. But when moved a little closer, this orange bundle suddenly sprang into life - hundreds of lives in fact. When I shot them they went one by one from the herd. They then go to continue their lives alone and do not return to the nest. it was the first time i'm had ever seen their birth. I have been looking for similar images online but I have never seen one like it.

Location: Seruyan, Central Borneo, Indonesia
