Interesting...they are probably viewed by prospective predators as a pile of poo. And no one wants to eat poo. :-) Nicely done shot.

Right. The use of camouflage, mimicry and warning signals is quite fascinating in the bug world.

You nailed that shot PINNACLE. It's tough to get good DIF shots.

This guy curled up in a ball when I was taking his picture. Not sure if it was taking a break from weaving his web or was trying to hide from me.
