I apologize for double posting the photos. I tried to edit and delete the duplicates, but when I did I ended up with no photos. And @C.C. says ... - I hear ya! I kill almost everything I grow, which is why I stick with succulents and cacti out on my porch. They've adapted to the heat and I leave them alone. There are no plants inside my home. Between having a wild cat and my asthma, I've left the plants to survive outside.
No one's going to say this is a beautiful pic but for me it's an exciting find. I come across one of these Stick bugs every ten years or so, I always get a kick out of them. They move back and forth I guess imatating
the wind blowing a branch but it looks like they're dancing.lol
