  6. Stick Insect, Borneo

    Stick Insect, Borneo

    Stick Insect 竹節蟲. It is not easy to spot them if they are not flying. When it is flying, you can see its beautiful colorful underwing's color. Mostly very striking. This one is red on its underwings. You will need to immediately lock your eye on it when you saw it fly over and make sure you...

Luckily, could I get some distant shots of them. Later in January, could I...
