Life on earth has never been the same

Micro to macro they went through change

Ant to man we travelled along

    To evolve has been the natural way


Now we hear of camouflage

Transparent animals have come to stay

Invisibility is a trait they see,

Where glass wings have come to play


 Butterflies, frogs and octopus have found their way

To elude the predators that come to prey

 Its evolution on the way

 What with man we cannot speculate.

    What a fantastic topic 😃 very beautifully written and guess what? Sometimes I feel translucent and some days I wish I was translucent. Wow a double poem here. Wonderful.

    Teddy its not fantasy its real frightening sometimes.It may take centuries but imagine all of becoming transparent. Thank you I hope it will activate your imagination too.

      Survival of the most adapted.
      Are humans the exception?
      I had not realised transparency had become 'popular' as a means of camouflage. Thanks.
