I love watching animals using camouflage to blend into their environments. We’ve seen in the past that some octopus have a really good ability to blend into their surroundings, to either save themselves from predators, or be efficient in catching prey.
This preying Mantis, after it has reached a certain age, turns into a mild pink colour and sits on top of plants. An untrained eye would perceive it as just another flower. But if you care to look carefully enough, you’ll see that it’s a Preying Mantis. It’s easier to see it in the video though.
