 Evolution: Library: Evolution of Camouflage
Another, more unusual variety of camouflage is "aggressive mimicry." Some insect populations have evolved to mimic another species' look or behavior, which allows them to get close enough to an unsuspecting bug to attack and eat it.
Like mimicry, camouflage can be "protective," to avoid the attention of predators, or "aggressive," to allay suspicion while the predator attacks its prey.
Similar to camouflage is disguise, in which the entire insect looks like a specific object, like a leaf or a twig that predators overlook.

One of the classical problems with split upper/lower colour camouflage patterns is that when the aircraft banks away from a threat it exposes its belly, if the lower surface colour contrasts significantly with the background, it may compromise the aircraft's position and manoeuvre to a sharp eyed fighter pilot.

The split upper grey and lower blue or fl camouflages were used extensively by the RAF during the forties and fifties on a range of recce and strike aircraft.

 Adaptive Coloration, Camouflage :: MRC :: Laboratory of Roger Hanlon
A primary defense against predators throughout the animal kingdom (and against the enemy during human warfare) is to avoid detection through camouflage.
A distinguishing feature of cephalopods is that individual animals can change their appearance with a speed and diversity unparalleled in the animal kingdom: we term this “rapid, neurally controlled polymorphism.” Some squids, octopuses and cuttlefish can show 30-50 different appearances.
An example of their versatility is that – unlike other animals that use one or a few mechanisms of camouflage – cephalopods use all six mechanisms.
