What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I am the rude person that sent you a photo a few minutes ago with no question or anything. sorry. Sometimes, I get excited. I found this insect (or creature) this morning next to the door going into our shed. He is still in the same position this afternoon. The interesting thing about this creature is that the lighter line going up his back, is actually curved over as if it were a tail????? I live in Ohatchee, Calhoun County, Alabama which is Northeast Alabama. Do you know what this creature is?
Thank you so very much

Hi Martha,
This isn’t one insect, but a pair. The smaller male Walkingstick is mounting the Musk Mare.
