Walking Stick, “It’s ALIVE!”

CA pfleg 4-18-76 006 1

…One of the more remarkable insects to be found, (and it’s hard to see them among the twigs,) this “thing” needed a double take for me to realize what it was, as it adorned the side of our house. Some Phasmatodea (try to pronounce that, not to mention type it correctly!)  can change color to match their surroundings. 

As usual, click on the image for a closer look, and thanks for viewing. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂

  1. Wow. I had to do a double take with your photo. Initially I wondered why you had taken a shot of pine straw, but then I read your posting and clicked on the photo. Now it’s easy to see this interesting little insect.
