Can you see the caterpillar hidden in this picture?  Until I went to the source and looked at the largest and highest-resolution photo, I sure couldn't (amazing job by the photographer)!  This is an outstanding example of camouflage, an animal adept at hiding itself in its natural environment, mainly for protection or predation.  For more examples of this behavior, go to this Mother Nature Network site.  And yes, our species is considered one of the many who possess this skill!
