In this challenge, show us the clever forms of camouflage which insects, spiders, birds or animals use to protect themselves from other predators, or while they wait for their own meal to come by. Camouflage is a form of visual mimicry, and clever examples of mimicry will be accepted in the challenge if they are appropriate. Macro and close-ups welcome.
