The BBC has a narrated slideshow that contains beautiful images of diverse life blending into its environment. I thought I'd link it for those with an interest in Nature...BBC Link







Although we are our own ecosystems; the way nature adapts to fill the niches always makes me smile

The spider is very cool.

I wonder what it does when that flower is not in bloom?

Thanks for sharing, the images are fantastic.


And just look at this master of camouflage!

It's a European place - somewhere in the photo...

Thanks for the vids. You're not joking, excellent video. If Military and Law Agencies could use that form of camouflage, they'd exploit it to death. Illegal wiretaps are common, imagine what they would be like with the ability to blend in to your immediate vicinity?

The mimic octopus is interesting too. Makes me wonder how much is instinctive and what, if any, is observed and learned? If one or more were placed in an environment that featured unfamiliar predators, would they then be able to mimic them?

Thanks Loam and Ziggy60 for the replies


I'm guessing that plaice is low down in the top right quarter? Could be anywhere or any number of them
