I have been quite busy with all my knitting projects as of late. But one day I was coming home and I saw this creature on my garage door:
I had read about walking sticks and had seen them in pictures and on tv, but it was nice to actually see one in person. Had it not been on the garage door I probably wouldn't have noticed it, thanks to it's excellent method of camouflage. It was about 4-5 inches long. I pointed it out to my daughter and explained to her what it was. She seemed fascinated by it. I didn't think they had a habitat in NJ. But then again, I've seen many strange looking insects and spiders living in the garden state.
