Stick . . .
. . . insect. Today we went to visit some friends of Simon and Susana's who live on a farm, producing wonderful tomatoes and cucumbers amongst other things. Jack had spent the night there. We were treated to a wonderful meal and shown around the farm. I was delighted to see this beautiful little insect pretending to be a stick. It was amongst a whole lot of snails that had hunkered down together. It is so dry out there - luckily there is a canal nearby so water is piped to the farm for the veg production, but the remainder is very dry.
