Artist's Description

Just when I thought that I had captured every possible angle or antic of these little bundles of feathers I caught this little fellow camouflaged in the tree today. He stayed there while I took his photo even though I suspect he was trying to get some peace to have an afternoon nap. He has brushed his head through a spider web and is wearing it on his head, perhaps additional camouflage! 20th Dec. 2012 Lumix Southland New Zealand
Camouflage is a method of crypsis—avoidance of observation—that allows an otherwise visible organism or object to remain indiscernible from the surrounding environment through deception. Examples include a tiger’s stripes, the battledress of a modern soldier and a butterfly camouflaging itself as a leaf. The theory of camouflage covers the various strategies which are used to achieve this effect. For more information on the silvereye please see my journal.
