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!

I've known you for too long. I remember my last comment being a good Year or Two.

You've earned a Watcher. A Watcher who is so inspired that he may also go to Venus Drive to take pictures as well.
