One of the reasons I love bugs macro photography is because i get to see how some of them have evolved to fool their prey / predator.

One of the best way to deceive your enemy is camouflage. Leaf, mud, seeds, stick, tree stump, tree bark... the possibility are endless!

When i was a kid, i used to have an undying passion for small critters. I had plenty time to watch them in theyre natural habitat because i lived out on the countryside and it was in France. Then i moved to Copenhaguen, thus there was no bug because it was a big city and it's almost always winter over here. Thanks a lot for bringing back those little guys to me man!
