Day 3 Critters: Stick Bug

I always wanted to see one,
so it was exciting times when the boys found this guy outside by the car!

They said he walked slowly like a praying mantis
and when he flew he had beautiful blue and yellow wings like a butterfly.
Never would have guessed!
He hides them pretty well, don't you think?
Gorgeous on the inside, with a plain rough exterior.
There are people like that.

Of course they thought it would be fun to give him a tour of our house,
much to their little sister's chagrin...
His shadow makes him look even bigger!

What a creative God we serve!

Sticks that walk?

I could never have come up with that.

I didn't know they had wings. That's amazing!
