Faces of Bougainville: Eden

“Eden”; Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea; December 2012

From a distance, I saw each of them pull out a small  flower from the  bush then sip something from it. I figured out that they were going after the sweet nectar so I tried to capture a closer image as they were doing the sipping but they got conscious of my camera and showed me their innocent smiles instead.
