Caption: Leaf mimic bush cricket (family Pseudophyllidae). The shape and colour of this insect help to camouflage it in its forest habitat. The holes in the leaf mimic holes made by leaf-cutter ants in real leaves. The imitation of plants by animals is known as phytomimesis. Photographed in the Jatun Sacha Reserve in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
