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!

Superb photography.
I thought deep sea creatures were fascinating, but this opens my eyes to see insects in a new light they really do have a large diversity of odd features & clever adaptations.
I suspect you travel around quite a bit, or can all these insects be found in Malaysia?
