    Hi,

    While documentating nature at CCR, I was lucky to catch a sight of an uncommon golden-brown "Stick Insect".

    By the way, Stick insects or some called it Walking Stick Insect belongs to the order . Their ability to keep very still and spend most of their time clinging on leaves, plants or shrubs makes them an excellent camouflager which is why most people do not notice their presence when walk by.

    Pls see link of the photo : http://home.pacific.net.sg/~wildlife/Stick%20Insect" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

    or if cannot access, pls try : http://home.pacific.net.sg/~wildlife/Stick%20Insect.html

    the link supplied by Hazel also works. ;)

    The "golden" look could be due to the warm WB typically associated with shots where flash is the main (and sole) source of light…..maybe. ;)

    What is the approx length of this phasmid?? :?:
