Camouflage in Nature

in macrophotography •  last month

Some insects look so similar to leaves that it makes if hard to find them when they are on a tree or on the ground.

When that insect is on a window, then it is easier to find. I thought that this particular insect was a piece of a leaf especially when I got close and it did not move.

You can even see the veins in the leaf bug. Nature is an awesome wonder.

Thanks. I have never seen this insect before around my house.

This bug looks like a leaf. Nice photo @jluvs2fly.

I researched this bug after I made the post. It is called a katydid and it eats leaves. I have been trying to figure out what was eating my pepper plants and I’ll bet that this is the culprit.
