The question is, who will scare whom first :)

They do keep very still and blend into the surroundings very well :-)

Oh, these can only be found inland when they are breeding. The rest of the time they are by the coast or in lakes... I also found one not too long ago. They really do their best to pretend and hope that they are invisible :)
