A Walking Stick

 One evening, while enjoying a cool fall breeze outside, I discovered a new "Backyard Friend"! Of course I had to run and get my trusty little camera! I proceeded to take a number of photos of this odd, quite large, 4in, insect. At first, I thought it was a great little mommy, just carrying her baby on her back. As it turns out, I have since been told, This is a Walking Stick and that is a male on her back, doing his thing!  Well! I have always said I needed to learn something new every day of my life. I prefered the baby story myself!
