stick-bug



Look what Rick found in the yard. Normally a little stick wouldn't catch his attention, but this one was clinging to the adobe wall, which is uncommon behavior for a stick. It turned out to be some kind of stick-bug. But not being Bug People, we have no idea what its actual correct stick-bug name might be. Pretty cool though, as bugs and sticks go.

Brilliant eyesight, Rick! I think you have a Phasmatodea-commonly known as a "Walkingstick".

Oh Michelle, maybe we should be designing clothes and jewelery for these guys. Some of the clothes are too ugly for people, too. LOL
