Whether to escape predators or to surprise their prey, the talented strategists of nature survive using visual trickery and fascinating biology. Even eagle-eyed viewers may be stymied by some of the images here, which include a willow ptarmigan, spitting image of a snowball; a tropical flounder disappearing into the sea floor; the potoo, a bird indistinguishable from a branch; the curiously named satanic leaf-tailed gecko, like a dry leaf with four legs; and moths whose wings look like the eyes of a much larger predator. In such chapters as "Identity Thieves," "Trojan Horses," and "At the Masked Ball," Jean-Philippe Noel explores the enigmatic world of camouflage and adaptation.
