great series - what a bunch of cuties!

Thank you, Marta RubioTexeira.
You have to look very close, they truly look like part of the branch.
As of today, Mama is still there with her grown-up babies... : )

Wow! they mimetize so well, as if they were spikes in the tree!

Thank you, camila.dodik.
Mom and babies still hanging there even though it has been raining and it has been very windy, all same size as her but different color still.
