Among the many wonders of nature are critters that possess a remarkable ability to blend in with their surroundings, which is beneficial both for predators and prey.
With this in mind we’ve selected 10 photographs that show some of nature’s true masters of camouflage, and challenge readers to try to spot them. Some are fairly easy, while others are difficult (a few hints for the more difficult photos are posted as an editor’s note at the bottom).
We’ll start with the camouflage mappet moth (pictured above), which resembles autumn foliage. Pity the bug that lands on the leaf nearest the moth. The rest …
Editor’s note: The mappet moth is sitting on a leaf, front and center; the scorpionfish has its mouth partially open as it rests on the rocky bottom; the great gray owl is peering toward the camera; the angel shark is the smooth blob in the middle; and the black arches moth’s classic shape is visible toward the lower left on the bark.)
