Dear Lower Alabama Bug guy,
These are Two-Striped Walkingsticks in the genus Anisomorpha, commonly called Muskmares because the much smaller male rides the larger female during mating, as your image illustrates, and because, according to BugGuide: “Members of this genus can deliver a chemical spray to the eyes that can cause corneal damage.”
