Trekking in Phang Nga Province - discovering unique critters

The Phasmida family (stick insects) offers some really unique specimens. This is a Leaf Insect, so called for very obvious reasons.

As with most stick insects, you have to really pay attention to spot them. I'm always on the lookout for them and other insects and I spot quite a few, but I'm sure I'm missing a lot more.
