Insecta Geometrica Green Leaf Insect Pin

10 USD / In stock.
"Insecta Geometrica" is back with a second series of beautiful hard enamel pins! This green leaf insect makes a lovely accessory on its own, alongside either of the other leaf bugs, or displayed with other pins in the series!

Leaf insects are remarkable creatures whose bodies mimic leaves as a form of camouflage. Their disguise includes behavior such as rocking back and forth while moving to fool predators into seeing them as leaves moved by the wind. Most of the approximately 50 known species are some shade of green, though they can also occur in other colors, particularly during the juvenile stages of life.

Hard enamel pin with gold plating, single post, and black clutch. Approximately 33 mm tall. Ships on a backing card in a protective plastic sleeve.

This pin design was made possible through the Insecta Geometrica 2 Kickstarter! Many thanks to the generous backers who made the campaign a success!
