Caption: Stick grasshopper (Taxiarchus sp.) on a leaf. Stick grasshoppers are native insects of Central and South America. Their bodies have evolved to mimic the shape and appearance of the sticks of the plants on which they live. This acts as a form of camouflage, helping the insect to hide from predators. Photographed in the Amazon rainforest at the Tiputini Biodiversity Station, Ecuador.
