Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society Member Meeting and Speaker Series 2022
Program: “Hiding in Plain Sight: Amazing Camouflage, Mimicry & Evasion in Nature”
Presenter: Judy Semroc, educator, naturalist, photographer
Date & Time: Tuesday, January 4, 2022 at 7:30 PM. Member Meeting at 7:30 PM and Speaker at 8:00 PM (EST).
Description: Now you don’t see it, but wait, now I do? Nature has many ways to evade our eyes through camouflage and mimicry. Insects and invertebrates have some of the best camouflage and mimicry, but many amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals have camouflage strategies as well. Even the largest mammal in the neighborhood, the White-tailed Deer, seem to “melt” into the vegetation. Judy Semroc will take us through ways many organisms evade us and perhaps even understand why animals have adapted these strategies.
