We frequently see “Stick Bugs” around our house, though more typically in the fall. They usually are 4-6 inches long and are brown. I understand that they must be small when newly hatched, but have never spotted one this small. I though you might be interested.
Thanks for the constant flow of fascinating bug information!

Dear Bob,
Thanks so much for providing our site with your image of an immature Walkingstick, and we commend your foresight in using the ruler for scale.
