Bruno D'Amicis - Master of camouflage


In a Malagasy rainforest a Collared nightjar (Gactornis enarratus) is almost invisible to spot while brooding on its nest built on an epiphytic fern (Asplenium nidus). The nest was along a busy touristic trail, but the bird trusted so much its incredible camouflage pattern that it never moved.

Location: Andasibe NP, Madagascar

    Amazing, the bird looks like a pile of leaves. It took me a while to see the outlines. Great stuff!
