Hi To everyone It has been a long time since I posted on here and this is not up to my old standard but I'm starting again, we Have some Stick insects in the house so I have no excuse not to pick up the camera, i do not even have to walk into the back garden.

This Sabah Stick (Aretaon asperrimus) Is a female, you can just see the foot of a male in the shot the males are much smaller and they ride round on the back of the female, I will post a shot when I get a good one.


FZ20 + Nikon T6 + Flash.

Hey Paul

Good to see you posting again. I love the stick critters. I seldom get the opportunity to see them and I like this up close in your face image.

Welcome back, Paul! I almost never see these guys, so I enjoy seeing these. That eye is interesting.

Hey why not? Ain't no use in a guy wear'n himself out a pair of shoes. :lol:

Welcome back Paul :D I haven't seen a Walking Stick or any stick creatures since I left Arakansas. They have bunches of them out there. As Mike commented that eye is something else. Wonder why insects have different eye patters like that? :-k Great image! :D
