Mimicry in the Insect, Spider & Plant World
Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us the clever forms of mimicry that insects, spiders, or other small arthropods use to trick their predators into believing they are unpalatable or dangerous. Some flowers use mimicry to entice pollination. Camouflage is a form of visual mimicry, and clever examples of camouflage will be accepted in the challenge if they are appropriate. (The insect or spider must be camouflaged, not just hiding.) The mimics should be outside, on flowers, leaves, or trees, NOT under artificial conditions. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimicry for more information. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.
