Speaking of Leaves   2 comments

There is no shortage of tropical insects here in El Salvador, and many are experts at camouflage.  This bright green grasshopper, known here as an “Esperanza” is modeled by my niece Carmen.  Its back looks just like a leaf.  Insects in New England are no contest to the ones here, these are sooo much better.

Have a look at this Camouflage Butterfly, he uses the same trick as the Esperanza.   See more at the Wonderful World of Insects in El Salvador Photo Gallery.
