A couple of critters that both were very difficult to spot, only making me aware of their presence because they moved.

Lucky for us they moved, Carol.
We get to see more wonderful creatures.
They are very well camouflaged.

Amazing how they blend in Carol !! it is as if they instinctively know where to sit to not be noticed by the flying predators ! I love the pose of the Mantis in V3 Smile

Ah! But they didn't manage to fool you or avoid your eagle eye, Carol: great shots of these critters trying to evade you, wonderful detail captured in all.

Really interesting. I remember as a child I picked up a twig from a tree where I lived and it moved! It was, of course, a stick insect but I didn't know that at the time. I can't remember anything else but I hope it survived my small clumsy hands.
