Caption: Leaf mimic bush crickets (family Pseudophyllidae) feeding on a leaf. The shape and colour of these insects help to camouflage them in their forest habitat. The larger and more drably coloured bush cricket (right) is a female, the other is a male. Bush crickets are mainly herbivores with well- developed sound communication. Photographed in the Amazon rainforest, Ecuador.
