That's pretty neat. Used to find them when we were kids and haven't seen one in years. Thanks
That's actually a Thread-legged Bug...but they are very often mistaken for Walking Sticks. You took a very nice shot of it.
Mus, thanks for the info.
I thought it was a small Walking Stick.
check it out...
Yep...Body like a Walking Stick and arms like a Praying Mantis...most folks think they are an immature of one or the other. I like your photo shows the small wings on the critter!
Here's a picture of a Butterfly at our home a month or so ago.
Now I know it's name...
The Bordered Patch

Again,'ve got another one of those "look-alikes". The butterfly in your photo is the Red Admiral. Check the differences here in the same website. But once again...NICE SHOT!!!
I find a walking stick about once a year in my yard and mantis more then that.
Nice photographs.
Thanks everyone.

Hern....Hmmm?? It looks a lot like one called the "Pale Beauty"...(Campaea perlata)...But those little light colored moths are tough for me be positive about. Here's a link to another photo of one. If it's not the correct species, I would at least believe it's in the same family. Someone else may have right answer to this one.
Here's a litle guy that visited me last archery season:
