I know it is hard, imagen in the wild, I am out very often but only few times we get to see this...

I know, I do a lot of walk in the cloud forest and this is one the most difficult things to see.

Now that is an interesting walking stick! and most likely pretty hard to spot with that camouflage going on. Thanks for sharing.
