A One-Time Encounter

Jaxson ( my 6-year-old grandson) and I were going through an insect sticker book. He moved the insects around into various habitats. This reminded me of a funny and unusual encounter with a walking stick.

This walking stick was on the side of our house September of 2010, and is the only picture that I have of one.

Many years ago I sat in the woods, drawing for a painting I planned to do. I moved and startled a walking stick. It rolled over on its back, legs curved upward, and was still in that position when I left.

It played dead the whole time!
