Amazing photos of a well-hidden Orchid Mantis and other camouflaged pretenders.
Sitting on a plant, this Orchid Mantis blends into its background as it patiently waits for its prey.
The Malaysian insect in one of several chameleon creatures photographed by Alex Hyde, a teacher of Biological Photography at the University of Nottingham.
The 27-year-old’s close-up pictures reveal the mysterious world of creatures in hiding.
He captured the chameleons in various locations, from the rainforests of Madagascar to his own home and garden in Derbyshire.
