The Apparition

Not long ago SU called me over to see a rather large Stick Insect on the screen door. To quote National Geographic; Stick insects are part of the Phasmida order, the name of which is derived from a Greek word meaning “apparition.”

We’d seen Stick Insects before but this was one of the largest so far so SU placed his hand beside this unusual creature, giving scale to this rather large bug.

 You can see more “scale” on The Daily Post.

    How long did that “stick” around?

  3. Careful, it might be an alien disguised as an insect 🙂

      The size of it I wouldn’t doubt that it would sweep us up and take us back to its planet. 🙂
