This Stick was made for walking

All this rain has brought the oddest things out of the bush. The other day at a client’s house this little guy wandered onto the driveway

69 huge stick insect

He’s quite well camouflaged on the gravel, but as you can see, he’s as long as a man’s forearm. A thing of beauty, with big blue thorn-like spikes and wings, he was quite friendly.



  1. That is incredibly cool! I was writing about our pet stick bugs recently, I will need to show this to my youngest, I'm sure she will get a kick out of seeing how big some stick bugs get.

  2. Wow-ser!!
    Nature is awesome!!
    Be well and safe, and dry!

  3. Wow! It's a big stick insect...:)


Thanks for your lovely words, witty banter and entertaining discussion :)
