What do you see in the picture below? A dried Almond tree leaf, a fallen almond and some other dried leaves. Look harder.
|Camouflage: Spot the Odd One|
Can you spot the spindly legs of the brown Leaf Insect sitting on the almond leaf? I nearly missed it, but when I saw the leaves move in the absence of a breeze, I looked closer and was in for a surprise. Not only does this creature look like brown leaves, it also tries to mimic the movement of leaves being blown in the wind. The insect rocks back and forth as it moves.

Here is a clear shot of the insect. If someone can help me identify it more accurately, please let me know.
