‘no, I am not a stick’

There could be million of these creatures in the trees near my tent and I don’t think I’d be able to find one. This little guy (about 8 cm long) fell from a gum tree onto my rear wiper blade. He had me completely fooled until I tried to brush him off. He had very sticky feet and wouldn’t budge. Then his little antennae popped up and his true nature was revealed. Amazing!

  1. The wonders of nature

  2. What a cool picture! I stared at the picture and thought, “neat shot of wood” lol! Then read what you said. I wouldn’t have caught the antennae in a million years. That’s pretty poor on my part. Just shows I need work on my seeing! Thanks for this Kirsty!

  3. I love this shot! Awesome texture; I just want to touch it.

  4. […] from Jonathan Livingston Seagull here and learned that things aren’t always what they seem here. I enjoyed an interview and demo with an artist here.  Oh, oh, I almost forgot! The singing […]

  5. I did see the antenna, but even then, I was trying to get his dimensions and outline! What a cool shot, and what great camo!!
