Two-Lined Walkingsticks (Anisomorpha buprestoides)

Here are some closeups of a female two-lined walkingstick. This time of year, these quintessential Florida scrub inscects are slowing down. During warm days, they are busy digging holes and laying eggs. During cold days like today, they don't do much of anything. Eventually, the cold will kill her and we'll have to wait until next summer for more walkingsticks.

Here are several articles I've written about one of my favorite animals in the Florida scrub.
