Prickly Stick Insect
A strange critter you have here, Steve. I knew many insects were expert in camouflage, but never seen this one yet. I think you did very well, specially on the DOF side, assuming the light was poor on the subject. I like the contrast between the tender moss and what seems to be a prickly stick. Very interresting. TFS.

How exciting to find such an unusual insect, and possibly the rarest of them all!
Great note and composition of this creature.
Nice sharp details and wonderful POV.
Thank you for sharing this with us, and please, keep us posted as to its status.

Ouch, invasion from space, Steve!!! Beware!
Weird and very interesting insect. I like composition with bed of mosses. Only one nit - too long for DOF ;-) Good work my friend!

Very strange creature nicely captured! Easier to see on the moss than on a branch! Great details and sharpness. Good DOF. Thanks for sharing!
