Stick Insect

At the moment, I seem to see long-legged Stick Insects in the bushes everywhere. 




Actually the Stick Insect is so well disguised that most of the time it can easily be mistaken for a small tree branch.  






I am always fascinated by its slim body, long legs and especially the tiny head.



However, no matter how well camouflaged they are, some Stick Insects still can not hide from the eyes of  Red Whiskered Bulbul birds.
