Slowly marching down a branch, this walkingstick looks like another part of the tree.

Looking out the window recently, I noted a mosquito-sized bug on the screen that upon closer inspect was not a mosquito.

Turns out it was a tiny walkingstick, the smallest version of our largest insect that I had ever seen. If it was a common walkingstick (also called a northern walkingstick), it had to have been a fresh hatchling just out of the egg.
