Walking Stick

I haven't seen a walking stick in years, many years! So when Wendy said there was one on their screen tent, of course I had to grab my camera. This one was quite long, and a special treat to see. When I was young, they could be seen everywhere. I'd sit on the porch steps with Grandpa, and when one would walk by he'd yell "walking stick!" , and we'd stomp are feet really fast til it walked past. Ah the fun days! Grandpa was my best buddy!

I've never actually seen one of these before in real life. Nature is so full of surprise's. What a great memory of Gramps.

Those are so cool, and no, we don't see them much anymore here either. Wonder why?

Hmmm.... I don't think I have ever seen anything like this... and I'm kind of glad I haven't... :)

How big are they?
