The Great Pretenders, a special issue for The 26th Phylliidae Convention

The Great Pretenders, which explored ideas of mimicry and authenticity in photography. So basically, in those pictures, there were only leaves, and no insects.

Millions of years of evolution by natural selection have given us what we classify today as the order Phasmatodea. Non can be quite distinct in the family Phylliidae. The first scientists to observe thse leaf insects once claimed that 'plants can now walk'. At first glance the degree of sophistication seen in these insects is impressive, but one must remember that evolution is an entirely 'blind' precess with no goals and is still continuing, albeit through the recent intervention of PSG members.
