My new "charges" BUGS

Just before my lovely wife headed off to Costa Rica, she got some walking sticks (the bugs, not a cane). Now I'm the bug caretaker. In the morning I give the little critters a good spritzing and in the evening I throw in a couple of fresh leaves. Walking sticks are vegetarians. My vegetarian son, Abram, should be happy about that.

These guys are boring. They pretty much just sit there. But, they are pretty cool to look at. One of the internet sites where I read up about these guys, said that when they are agitated they sway like they are being blown by a breeze. My guys are as steady as a rock, no swaying. Maybe tonight I'll see if I can agitate them!

Don't worry honey, the "kids" are fine.
