A Walking Stick on the Beach

Hanging at the Beach Hanging around at the beach, this walking stick (or stick insect) was attempting to hide on a large piece of driftwood, washed up during the last storm. Interesting little creatures, walking sticks mimic not only the shape of a stick, but also their movements. They bob up and down, and sway side to side, the same as a stick moving in the breeze. Harmless to humans, they're interesting to encounter, fun to watch, and can make great playmates for kids.
