Headline : Master of Disguise: Leaf Mimicking Grasshopper (Systella sp, Trigonopterygidae)
Caption : Wildlife photographer David Weiller captured this Leaf Mimicking Grasshopper blending in to its natural surroundings of the rainforest in Crocker Range National Park in Sabah, Borneo, East Malaysia. This remarkably well-camouflaged leaf mimicking Grasshopper had slow movements mimicking a fluttering leaf, which allowed David to spot it. Looking closely, its body resembles a green leaf with patches of brown and even leaf-life veins.
