So I saw a walking stick this morning when I was watering my flowers. He seemed a little lackadaisical as he stumbled across the patio. I thought maybe he'd still be there when I was done watering. What a perfect specimen to paint! When I returned from watering my plants, he was nowhere to be found. Not sure if he found shelter or whisked off by some hungry bird. He was the first walking stick I had seen all season! Wonder if I'll even see another one? In the meantime, here's a common friend : the ant!
