Meet Mr Stick who was our house guest for one night. My partner found it out near the front door on the fly screen on the front window. We kept it over night as the kids were asleep by then. We wanted to show them in the morning as a surprise.
Katie was giggling when Mr Stick was climbing over her. She is so brave. LOL.
My mum and dad where coming over for a visit later that morning. They usually have their cameras with them. I put the stick insect on my Peace Lily thinking it would be a nice snack for it while we where waiting, then I would take a few pictures and let it go out in the backyard.
This stick insect only eats eucalyptus leaves so my Peace Lily wasn't a nice snack.
I took it out side and put it on the gum tree and munch munch munch .......
I had a go on my mum's Nikon camera. Wow, what a difference a decent camera makes.
I was trying to capture the movement of it jaws eating the gum leaf. I took a whole heap of photos - here are a couple.
