One of the prize finds of the visit to Uranquinty - I was strolling past a large gum tree, scanning it for anything interesting, and stopped dead with an exclamation of, if I recall correctly, "Holy M*****-F***ing F***!!!!"

What had I seen? This! The supremely camouflaged Entometa fervens, when it's still pretending to be a twig and hasn't resorted to it's startling snake mimicry.
