Dead Leaf Mimics

I spotted a number of interesting insects one night inside my home. They all shared something in common, which was that all of them looked similar to a dead leaf. Here's a katydid.




A big moth that shared the exact same colour as the katydid above.




And then a moth with different shades of brown. It would still look extremely camouflaged in leaf litter.

Interesting subject. I would love to see more posts from you. By the way, Jeff Corwin who you admire, bought some of my artwork.
