Caption: Flower mimicking crab spider. Close-up of a flower mimicking crab spider (Epicadus heterogaster) on a leaf. This spider has evolved to closely resemble the shape and colouration of a flower. This acts as a form of camouflage, helping the insect to hide from predators. Photographed in Rio Bigal Biological Reserve, Amazon Rainforest, Ecuador.
