Caption: Katydid. Close-up of a leaf-mimic katydid (family Tettigoniidae) blending in with the leaves on which it is standing. The imitation of plants by animals is known as phytomimesis. This cryptic colouration helps the insect hide amongst the foliage in which it lives. Katydids (a type of cricket) are named after the sound they make. Photographed in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest.
