Guardian of the Trees

A tiny guardian mantis for tiny tree seedlings.

As the tiny eucalyptus seeds germinate on the Trees For Life bench I find this tiny baby keeping watch each time I roll back the shade cover to water.

At just over 1cm (about half an inch) in size he watches me water, no doubt waiting for his safe cover to be put back in place. biggrin
