Caption: Peacock Katydid (Pterochroza ocellata) showing its startle display. At rest, this species resembles a dead leaf. The startle display is used to shock predators, giving the katydid time to escape. See image Z305/203 for the katydid before displaying. Photo taken at Madre Selva Preserve, Loreto, Peru.
