This beautifully illustrated book on camouflaged animals includes some of nature’s greatest designs and is one of the most remarkable compilations of pictures on the subject ever published.
From foxes to frogfish and owls to octopuses, some of the images have to be seen to be believed in terms of the subjects’ uncanny imitations of their natural backgrounds, which often aid them in their roles as hunting predator or as prey attempting to avoid capture.
Get an antelope’s-eye view of a lion, and marvel at leaf-like bugs and green lichen-covered sloths which blend in with their surroundings. Decades of work by award-winning photographers Joe and Mary Ann McDonald are distilled down into this stunning collection of images.
