Emeralds, Geometer Moths

The snapshot story of camouflage on these wings might go like this; the green part of the leaf is still living; the brown parts are dead. In addition the darkened streaks and spots might be old feeding scars from tiny sucking insects. Add some fresh white mold to the edges of the living and dead tissue and you have a convincing dying leaf
