You've Got Mail
Yesterday afternoon when I went to check the mail. I found a little surprise. There was a small Walkingstick Bug crawling around our mailbox. I looked for a container in my pick up to put it in and I couldn't find anything. A light bulb went on in my head and I proceeded to very carefully put it into a bag of birdseed I had. I gently rolled the top shut being careful not to squish the poor little thing. When I got inside the house I transferred it to a jar. This morning I photographed it and then set it free out in the forest. Curious to see what kind of Walkingstick it was I looked it up on the internet. I found that it is a Conifer Bug and that it was indeed part of the Walkingstick family. May you have a blessed day, chris Image created with a handheld Canon 7D and a 100mm macro lens.
