    And they say don't work with children....

    As my Macleays spectre stick insect has reached maturity, I "thought" I'd get a few more photos...
    She is usually ok with being out of her home, and she came onto my hand with no fuss, just as usual.
    I had set up a nice diorama, and thought the out of focus background would contrast her sharp profile....
    As soon as I put her on there, (which was a feat in itself) she refused to move...the black plastic "prodder"
    she grabbed and that was that....so please excuse the lack of composition. Those spikes can give a nasty prick if she
    gets the hump...

                Excellent shots, though maybe just a bit too tight in the frame.

                    I apologised for the composition in the post Brian, trust me, I was lucky to get those shots.
                    They don't respond to posing instructions too well
