any idea on subfamily or species?
Oh, hell no. Just like a grasshopper is a grasshopper and a cricket is a cricket in my world... It's really tough to say without seeing a side shot (at least for me). There are over 200 species of the family Tettigoniidae in North America. The more that I looked, the more confused I became.
time to move!
Mike spotted this walking stick on my office porch this morning. I tried to get a photo of me holding it, but the darn thing was too fast--up my arm, on my head, down my back... I had to settle for a photo of it on a towel on the floor, where it would finally stay still:
Don't like things crawling on me....even when I know what it is....think the towel was a good idea
Have not seen one in years~thanks for sharing - very nice~~
I have never seen one in person. I may have walked by many in my time, but never noticed.
To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.

I'm always pleased to be reminded those things live in this region. Very cool.
