Great photo of this insect in very beautiful natural camouflaged colours. Good use of flash. Excellent sharpness and details.

Though I can't give you the ID of this species of Stick Insect, it is a fine capture of this giant.
The lateral POV shows its features with fine detail and colours against a suitable BG, which should enable any person with a knowledge of Phasmids to ID it.
Thanks and have a good Sunday,

Very unusual creature indeed! Strong saturated colors, good dept of field,sharpness and composition. It is a big insect, and I know how difficult is to point the camera towards such a complicated structure! Specially when is design to blend with the environment.Well done!

What a strange, huge and vicious-looking insect!! Excellent macro showing very fine details and colours. It doesn't look much like a Stick insect but I'm sure Ivan is right!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

It's a terrible bug! but very well photographed! what a big thing!
Good POV, contrast is perfect and I congratulated you by selective cutting!
Of course, Laurens could identify! he usually has similar bugs as pets! in the picture of his profile, appears with a huge bug attached to his face! :)
