I'm guessing from some of your other posts that those leaves were growing in Malaysia?

Isn't there a specie that loooks like ants as nymphs, then they look like scorpions as adults?

A lot of species look like ants as nymphs. Probably handy, as ants tend to attack en masse so looking like one may help keep the predators away.

I wonder how that evolved.

I don't understand how evolution works when it comes to camoflauge.

There had to be a first one that looked like a flower, ant, leaf, twig to survive and pass that trait.
Didn't there?

yeah, I don't get how they "know" what to look like for camouflauge... it's weird.
