In the highlands of Malaysia, a predatory orchid mantis mimics the shape and color of the pastel flower petals upon which it rests, complete with matching “nectar guides” on its abdomen. Masquerading as an orchid, the mantis utilizes both aspects of deception: camouflage to help catch prey, as well as camouflage to escape capture.
