Plagiarism: It's Like a Leaf bug
Here you see three pictures. A basic leaf, a leaf bug, and a hidden leaf bug. Say, the leaf is the original copy. The leaf bug then comes in and looks exactly like the leaf, so when it is around other leaves it is hard to find it. That's sort of like plagiarism; taking someone else's work (the leaf), and claiming it as one's own (the leaf bug).
