Stick Insect

Large stick insect on bird netting

I thought this fellow was a piece of bark when I first saw him over my head on the bird netting.

Must've been a male, because only males can fly properly, and this fellow took off after a while. It's amazing to see them flying, because when they're at rest their wings aren't at all obvious. Spread, they're big and gauzy, but not nearly as long as the body they support.
