the strange wee beastie

stick insect's eyeSo this poor beastie wandered inside, and had gotten lost in the hallway, its claws collecting the dust-bunnies as it skittered across the wooden floor.

It was very large for this time of year – the body alone being around 12cm with the legs adding considerable extra length.

After getting it to model for me I took it outside and placed into the cover of our most expansive and indisciplined rose bush, where hopefully the beastie will go forth and multiply.

There are at least another two varieties of these to be found locally – this brown, and the similar green being most common, with an outrageously spiky brown also to be found. I shall inflict these on you as the opportunity arises…
