Hope you had a nice holiday. Opened my front door this morning and this Tian Walking Stick, Acrophylla titan, was hanging on the screen. Hope you like the shots.
Thanks for sending us such a wonderful image. According to the Brisbane Insect Website, this is the longest insect in Australia. You always seem to submit the most amazing insect photos. Tell us please, do you live in a more natural area of Australia than most folk? or are you a city dweller?
I live on 100 acres of dry sclerophyll forest 30 km’s from a town of 3000 people. All the other landholders around me are 100 acres and above, some in the thousands of acres so yes, I’m living somewhat closer to nature than most.
Glad you like the shots, had to hold the girl right out at arms length to fit her in the frame while shooting with the other hand.
