This little guy was perched on the side of the house next to the garage entrance. He is pretty good sized – about 8 inches long and well, pretty creepy looking.
I took the pictures and was a little freaked out because Shannon said the walking stick could sting me with it’s tail. I didn’t think they could hurt humans and don’t remember them hurting me when I was a little kid and found one – but then again I don’t have a great memory.
So Shannon freaked me out and made the picture taking a bit of a challenge to overcome a fear of getting stung by the little guy if I got too close. I used the micro mode on my little camera and the pictures came out great! It was overcast so I was afraid they would not look good.
