Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and holiday season to everyone.
“To celebrate the end of the year share the most meaningful photo you’ve taken in 2017.” For many reasons the place represented in this photo has a lot of meaning for me. That it is done in gingerbread is just that much sweeter. Here’s hoping you, too, have had good memories of special places or times in 2017.
Female Australian walking stick (extatosoma tiaratum). To avoid predators this docile insect is camouflaged to look like leaves and if threatened, will curl its tail to mimic a scorpion. The one shown here, subject of the last post, is now back in her terrarium happy to munch on eucalyptus leaves.

The first image is of impressive cactus flowers captured in the morning. The second, a scant few hours later, is of the same flowers that afternoon. What an amazing change in so short a time.
