    What are you talking about? I didn't see any insects...

    Wow, that's incredible. Just wow. That's very intersting. I actually couldn't find the insect on the first picture for a second...LOL. I can't find the frog, though.

    cool! Some of those things look like a plant becoming an animal! Though, I think the first frog shouldn't count since it is only the color.

    It was more than just colors. It had spots and shades of a dead leaf.
