Leaf with legs!
Leaf with legs!

Description: New Zealand insect, not sure of the proper name but I call it a "leaf with legs"... Its camouflage is very effective when it's on a plant, less so when it's on a doorstep tile!

Ah! Cool!

There's another little critter here (which I don't know if you also get in Oz) - it has a body about 3-4mm long, appears at dusk mostly, and looks like a small bug with a "bad hair day" (white fluff on its back)... Have been trying to get a macro shot of one of those, but the light outside wasn't good enough yesterday...

Cheers for your comments - it was a steady hand! And the best shot of about eight or so that I took. Gotta love digital cameras, click, click, click!!!

We have these little critters too and knowing how small they are, you've captured lot of detail, you must have a very steady hand, or a really small tripod ;-) Nice shot :-)
