Farm Fresh Eggs! - Northern Walkingstick Eggs - Diapheromera femorata - Diapheromera femorata

Farm Fresh Eggs! - Northern Walkingstick Eggs - Diapheromera femorata - Diapheromera femorata
8th Crow Wing Lake, Hubbard County, Minnesota, USA
October 5, 2010
Here is a magnified image. Notice the beautiful camouflage of these little jewels. They look exactly like the seeds of many of the local wildflowers. I have heard stories of large populations of Walkingsticks laying eggs in large quantities, sounding like rain. Such magnificent creatures!

I apologize for the quality of all images. My camera is not exactly pleased with indoor photos.
