Big Stick


What a wee beasty. This lovely bright green thing must be colour blind if it thought it could hide from my eagle eyes. Our new house is surrounded by a lot more trees so I am constantly being delighted by all the new insects, I haven't seen a massive stick insect like this since I lived up north. Weta's are also living at the bottom of my garden. Plus our garden is under the flight path of native wood pigeons (kereru), always amazed those plump birds can even fly, plus the added bonus of the swooping sounds their wings make. Its nature in the suburbs.
And now for a poll, head or bum end?

It's a bum, and it looks like a female...
