A Titan in the garden!
Edd was taking in the washing this evening when a helper appeared. This Titan stick insect Acrophylla titan is the largest stick insect in Australia (I'm pretty sure its this and not an equally well named but not so large Goliath stick insect, as the Goliath is much greener in colour). It was sitting on the chair watching over the wash basket. After we disturbed him he wandered off to my (rather dead) herb pot and tried very hard to convince us he really is a stick, turning his head to look at us each in turn in quite a human sort of way, with those big black eyes.
