Bugs!

While hiking and birding, Shey and I stumbled across this huge Texas Walking Stick. This monster was easily 6-inches long. Both of us took a video of it on the run.

Here are some stills of the giant.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  1. These are beautiful Eric!! Love the walking stick. We came home last night to find a 3″ katydid sitting on our kitchen island. Hubby just caught it and put it outside… love living in Tejas, yes? πŸ™‚

      Thank you! If this Walking Stick hadn’t moved about 6 inches from me, I wouldn’t have seen it. I love Katydids too. Cool looking creatures. And yeah, enjoying the wilds of Tejas plenty. πŸ˜‰

    Love stick insects and praying mantis. They feel all funny when they walk on you, but it’s not creepy πŸ™‚ Wish I could take pics like this. LOL might help if I have a camera

    Cool shots! I watched a couple butterflies as they prepared to mate last summer. It was crazy!
