Tomorrow I have to go to check up my eyes.Still haven't find the specie!!!!!Just stick!!!
But you are saying,then it must be there.
First time couldn't find the specie well!
I think its head portion is in right side and its body is hanging!
Christodoulos,you have captured an unique camouflage specie which I haven't seen before,
Thanks for your great contribution here in TN,

WOW ! I have an idea which one is the insect
and which one is the stick but even that the
camouflage is as great that I am not sure of me,
this is the most superbly camouflaged creature of TN, TFS

You must have good eyes...to see thia Bacillus atticus which looks like a twig.
We don't have these insects here around, but my son once brought one home for dissection at school :-)

Exactly Ram's question came into my mind: which is the insect and which is the branch? :-) Unbelievable camouflage, and you have eyes for the details. Excellent composition and technicality, albeit it's usual from you, but the uniqueness of this photo is peerless. Incredible job. Congratulations, and thanx for your valuable input to educate us. Stunner.
Best regards, László

Hi dear Christodoulos,
This picture shows you a deeper look.
You are deep thinkers.
You look great and beautiful.

What a neat looking stick insect, it looks exactly like the twig it is perched on. I am not sure how you spotted it, but I am sure glad you did and was able to capture this fine looking photo.
I had the opportunity once to photograph one while in Costa Rica, but the image didn't turn out very well.

I had to turn the image in my head to identify the insect. The camouflage is so perfect, no wander these insects are called "sticks". And you manage to capture it with perfect details and colors.
