Insects

At first I thought I would have to cheat and use a spider, but then I remembered that I saw some really neat insects in Madagascar, so here are a few masters of camouflage. This is a close-up of a leaf insect:

And a stick insect who doesn't look like an insect at all:

Oooh, you saw life phasmids? How awesome! Terrific shots!
Clearly you know way more about insects than I do, so I'm just going to say yes and thank you. :-)
No, I've just read Patrick O'Brian and seen the movie, and let myself be carried away of a standing joke in a fan forum around both. Looking it up for a link I also just learned that I - we in the forum - were wrong all the time: phasmids don't refer to all such insects as I thougth, just to the stick insect. Ah well. *blushes*
Still, the envy very much remains.
