Leaf-Mimic Butterfly

This butterfly displays one of the best examples of camouflage known to science, and one of the most obvious examples of Divine design.  It is perfectly designed to mimic an unappetizing dead leaf, from the tatters in the brown wings to the way it sways in the breeze.  If it weren’t for the thin legs and antennae, this animal would be impossible to spot among the leaves of the forest.  Not only is this insect almost invisible to predators, but also gifted with great speed and agility.  If disturbed, it can fly away at speeds over 20 miles per hour into the trees.  God gave the Leaf-Mimic Butterfly this wide range of concealing and evasive designs so it can pollinate the tropical plant life in relative peace and safety.
