Beautiful series. one of my favorite pictures from our 2011 visit was a leopard in the dry grass. they blend so well its amazing

Robyn, thank you for continuing my education regarding the animals of Londolozi. Camouflage is my favorite form of deception even in humans.

Superb blog, Robyn. As we’re out on safari we don’t always appreciate all the camouflaged critters.

Great post Robyn! Then never ending wonders of the wild never ceasing to amaze!!

Thanks Robyn for your story of the camouflaged animals. Nature is so intriguing, I can not get enough it. Animal foto’s are beautiful.

Robyn, you’ve written another wonderful blog filled with fascinating information about the camouflage within animal groups. I especially enjoyed seeing the tree agama as they literally disappear into their background. Whilst out on safari, sometimes my guide will point out an animal and it takes me a few seconds to register where and what it is, true camouflage! I’m looking forward to your next article!

So many lovely and attractive examples if camouflage. Thanks for sharing.

Fascinating, this ability of animals to camouflage themselves

Wow, I did not know that about cheetah cubs imitating badgers. Nature is a marvel.
