This is a series of photos of various species of spiders that camouflage themselves as bird droppings to avoid predation (either by themselves or with some carefully crafted webbing). Would you dress up like bird shit to avoid getting eaten? I would. I'd even make sure I smell like it too. "You already do." It was a rough weekend. "You need help." No, I need you to come change me like a baby.

Keep going for several more species.
