With the mass production of this camouflage fabric in the Second World War, it was quickly adopted by the fashion world.

  1. The Emperor Angelfish (Pomacanthus imperator) is a species of the Marine Angelfish. It is a reef-associated fish from the Indian and Pacific Ocean. It remains a photographer and artist favourite, owing to its unique, brilliant pattern of coloration. Interestingly, they undergo changes in three stages; namely Juvenile, Intermediate and Adult, spanning up to two years. In the Juvenile stage, it exhibits white circles across a blue/black body with a clear tail until it is about four inches. In the Intermediate stage, it exhibits a similar white circle pattern but with lateral yellow lines crossing through the white circles. Eventually, the white circles disappear to make room for the beautiful yellow colouring that the fish is known for. The tail begins to transition from clear to classic yellow. Once the fish is about six inches, it usually reaches its final coloration form. As an adult, the beautiful blue body gets covered with bright yellow horizontal stripes!

  2. The Red-Bearded Bee-Eater (Nyctyornis Amictus) is a large species of bee-eater from the Indo-Malayan sub-region of South-east Asia. This species is found in openings of patches of dense forest. It nests in burrows tunnelled into the side of sandy banks. It is a colourful bird with a long tail, extended curved beak and pointed wings. It is predominantly green in colour with a red patch that extends onto the slightly hanging throat feathers to form a 'beard'. It eats insects, especially bees, wasps and hornets and hunts either alone or in pairs rather than in flocks. It sits motionless for long periods before attacking its prey.
