Nature's Ghost

Here's a phasmatodea aka walking stick insect that was getting ready to hitch a ride on our jeep. We are assuming the tiny phasmid fell from the tree that towers overhead. They are also nicknamed stick-bugs and ghost insects—for good reason. It barely moved making like a twig.

He was moving to another neighborhood. Looks somewhat like a preying mantis.

He had his bags packed and we stopped him cold—hope his ticket is refundable.
