Pirates of the Crappibean

Berthed at Lakes Entrance, Victoria, a vessel named for the Atlantic horse mackerel flies the Jolly Roger — complete with the neat eye patch over one of the empty eye sockets.

Phasmid Friday

Late posting of a phasmid (a.k.a., stick insect) which yesterday made herself at home on the front entrance of our holiday unit at Metung, Victoria.

I liked the way the tip of the abdomen mimics a budding shoot. Clever fellow!

This specimen was around 12cm in length, of a species I’ve yet to identify. Anyone?
