Unbelievable... The Octopus even matches the textural quality of the 'sea-shrub'. Do we know if it can match other plants? Or only that particular one?
I always thought hummingbirds were peace loving creatures...
they can match pretty much anything. i saw one disguise itself as a ferris wheel once.
I enjoyed your St. Paddy's concept. I don't think the hummer's a Green Hermit, though. Looks like a plain old Ruby-throat to me. The Gecko's a Gold Dust Day Gecko (Phelsuma laticauda)from Madagascar.
I'm afraid I have to agree with cpbvk - the lovely hummer's not a Green hermit (Phaethornis guy). The bill's a dead giveaway - P. guy has a long curving bill, and most hermits aren't that iridescent.
Good luck getting it ID'd tho - and great pictures.
