Northern Walkingstick

        These insects are not seen very often. I believe that this one is only the second one that we have found on our property in the last ten years. I attempted to enhance it a bit so it was easier to see but when it is in a tree it is very difficult to see. Fleur-Ange found it yesterday on a blue tarp where it was more easily spotted.

        I believe that the French name for the walkingtick is phasme bâton. The Latin is Diapheromera femorata.
