Hello Pedro,
A great close-up image of this fine looking Walking Stick. I have always wanted to photograph one, but never seem to have a camera on hand when I run into one. Focus is sharp and the detail is very good. Your photo shows us how well camouflaged this unique insect is when in it's natural habitat. Beautiful colors and just the right amount of exposure.

Hello Pedro,
I love this amazing insect. Excellent camouflage with this body form.

Beautiful macro of this insect Pedro .

An amazing creature that is very aptly named, Pedro.
The insect not only looks like a stick but is also fully assimilated in the green of the BG.
Very sharp and crisp image with phenomenal focus and sharpness.
