I have been wanting to photograph a Walking Stick for a long time, so I was delighted to see this guy on the wall of the University of Tennessee Arboretum office building. He was 4" long with his front legs and antennae held together. He was incredibly camouflaged, if he had been on the ground or on a tree I would have never seen him. The following photograph shows a close-up of his head.
