animal camouflage

mothAs I walked out the door this morning I thought this was a leaf, but it is a moth. Animals are masters at self defense and changing their appearance to match their environment. The most common is the the chameleon that can change colors on a whim. One of the most amazing is the Indonesian Mimic Octopus. One of my favorites is the Malaysian Orchid Mantis, how lovely to live in orchids unseen. Now that I think about it – how many animals have we NOT seen?
