These stunning photos of animal camouflage and mimicry seem like something from a game of ‘Where’s Waldo.’

These masters of disguise are demonstrating their art of clever concealment which they use as a means of survival in the natural world.

This collection of images include a green frog emerging from duckweed, a mimic octopus blending into the sand, a harlequin crab atop a sea cucumber, a Pacific spotted scorpionfish, a grizzly bear hiding in snow-covered bushes, a young crocodile hiding under a water lily, a Malaysian orchid mantis on a flower, a locust mimicking a blade of grass, a merlet’s scorpionfish amid colorful coral, and a crab spider on a Geranium flower.
