Caption: Leaf-mimic katydid (Typophyllum sp.), Amazon rainforest, Loreto, Peru. This leaf-mimic katydid looks incredibly similar to the dead brown leaves on which it rests. Its body and wings include fake leaf veins, imitation moss, lichen spots and even fake caterpillar bite marks along the edge. This photo is a composite; a more uniformly-coloured Amazon rainforest background was added.
