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!

Great photos, great insects, excellent knowledge.
Doubted your longhorn weevil, but as I looked through more of your work I see you got excellent determination skills, so I take back my doubts.

Thanks for your great work!
