Leaf mimic bush cricket (family Tettigoniidae). This bush cricket has evolved to closely resemble the shape and colouration of the leaves of the plants on which it lives. This acts as a form of camouflage, helping the insect to hide from predators. Photographed in the Jatun Sacha Reserve, Amazon Rainforest, Ecuador.
