Please don't kill - they all have a purpose :-)

Ma Sha Allah ...... this little fellow jus came back from the dead it seems ........... at first i took it inside a bottle used for spaying insecticides(although i washed it thoroughly) , then i thought it had died as it stopped moving (almost totally, only showing signs of dying) and legs all curled in , so i put it in a box ...but after a few days i found it to be very active and also flying

Chittagong (চট্টগ্রাম), Chittagong District, Bangladesh
