Walking Stick Insect
photo by: Ken Watson, 2001

While out on a leisurely Fall colour drive, this bug suddenly dropped onto the windshield of my car. It's one thing to have a mosquito or fly hit the windshield, quite another to be suddenly staring eye to eye with a creature out of the Cretaceous era. This bug, which I assume to be a variety of Walking Stick, normally hides in a tree. It is perfectly harmless. I released it on the side of the road and presumably it went back to doing whatever Walking Sticks normally do.
