One of the most amazing, mind blowing and camouflaged insects I have ever seen. it's body and legs has leaf/lichen like appendages growing out of it, check out the last 2 pics to see how well it blends in.

The only reason I spotted this was because it was on a leaf moving its body back and forth in a swaying motion. I'm not sure what it was doing but it made it much easier to spot. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! Thankfully the insect was very calm and stayed very still even when it was on my hand. Spotted in San Cipriano forest reserve.
