D is for Deception

I chose Deception for the letter D of my Abstract Nouns Alphabet. I was originally going to illustrate this with a wolf in sheep's clothing, but then I thought it would be fun to draw a leaf bug instead. The leaf bug didn't quite work, mostly because it looks exactly like a leaf, and I was afraid that no one would understand the drawing. So I compromised and used the more recognizable praying mantis.

Here are some amazing examples of insect camouflage that I found while researching leaf bugs.
