Avid readers of this blog will assume that I am an enthusiast of insects. Well, yes, but no, not really. I just love the beauty of things and as far as Mallorca is concerned, I see beauty everywhere. And sometimes it is insects.
I first thought this little creature here was perhaps a Praying Mantis, but on reflection I don’t think so. A Praying Mantis would be a Mantodea insect. Perhaps we have a Stick Mantis here. Someone out there may know better. It is said that there are some 3,000 different species of stick insects. Some of them are rather beautiful.
Apparently, some people keep these little creatures as pets. There you go.
