Stowaway


This little fellow was clinging to my backpack when I got home today. He's about three quarters of an inch in length. He lives in our bushes now. (click the image for full size)

Sues: It's a walking stick, also known as a stick bug, or phasmotodea. I spotted it on the side of my bag, and thought it was a piece of foliage, until it moved.

Erika: Thanks for stopping by. Yeah; he's (she's?) a neat little critter.
