Where's Wally (Waldo)? Camouflage in the Insect & Spider World

Challenge #39 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us the clever forms of camouflage that insects, spiders, or other small arthropods use to hide themselves from other predators, or wait for their own meal to come along. They should be outside, on flowers, leaves, or trees, NOT under studio lights. Macro and close-up shots welcome. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.

Taken: Monday, 8th March, 2010
Focal length: 200 mm
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec
Aperture: F11
ISO: 400
Notes: Taken at 1:1 with my Sigma 150mm lens - 2 shots, manually stacked in Photoshop and merged using masking layers. Due to the size of both subjects in the image, there is no way to include both of them in focus and sharp without stacking. Please note that these were manually stacked - no automated stacking software (such as combinezm) was used.
