Help Me !!!

This interesting scene is captured when I was doing macro photography in a tropical forest in Malaysia. It was a long battle between a young flower mantis (approximately with body length of less than 1 cm or stage of 2nd to 3rd instar) and little damsel-fly in a bushes. The battle took about 5 minutes and it gave me ample of opportunity to get the best moment of the fighting.
