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!

Do you know about Project Noah? It's a very good site for pictures pertaining to biology. You post pictures of creatures and you give info on the pics. It's really great.
