You can see where it got its name from, Sylvia, what remarkable camouflage it has. Very well captured. Wish I could go to Wisley and see them! Carol

Excellent shot Sylvia. It really is the most marvellous disguise in its normal habitat.

As Carol says, it's very well named, well disguised as a leaf: very nice crisp shot, Sylvia.
