Camera Critters and Saturday's Critters
|Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, November 5, 2015|
Common American Walkingstick, Diapheromera femorata, aka The Devil's Walking Stick.
Here it is with its front legs raised alongside its head and antennae, pretending to be a stick. You have to look closely to see its other legs holding onto the plant. Its head is that bump in front of my first finger. Great camouflage!

|Pickwick Lake, Tennessee, USA, November 5, 2015|
On Thursday we drove north into Tennessee to look at the Autumn foliage. We stopped at Pickwick to see how many birds were at the lake. A large flock of Canada Geese sounded the alarm as soon as we got out of the car. It took them about ten minutes of loud honking before they decided we were not a danger to them. The birds in the water are Coots, and there are a few Mallard Ducks among them. The bridge over Pickwick Dam is in the background.

Recent rains have knocked a lot of leaves off the trees, but there are still a few beauties.
I hope you have a beautiful week-end!
