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

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.

mantises are the true mistresses of camouflage but the hopper is my star with that glorious light.
