How cute and curious looking. What looks like wings might be some form of moment sensor? LOL, or radar?
Haha,yes perhaps radar.Thanks Ann.:)
Wow! This is outstanding !
you simply amaze me jimmy… that’s a stick insect I never saw. turquoise… fascinating!
You have to see it in motion to believe it´s actually a real insect.I saw this species for the first time on YouTube and couldn´t believe my eyes!Thanks Manon.
Wow! what a gorgeous creature this is, nature truly amazes me, such an amazing capture Jimmy :o)x
Thanks Josie.Yes,this is truly one of nature´s most remarkable creations!:)
man that’s just incredible … are you sure you don’t go out there with your little paintbrushes ??? extraordinary colours :)))
Haha,no those are its real colors.It´s a very special creature.And I always thought that all stick insects were just brown or green like the vegetation they live on and feed from.Clearly I thought wrong!Thanks Carol.:)
Very cool shot Jimmy. I saw a number of different stick insects while in Madagascar, but not these ones!
Thanks Chris!I don´t know how common they are in Madagascar.And only fullgrown males have this special blue colour!Cheers,Jim
My goodness…what an amazing little creature! Well captured!
