Here are the insects!

Here’s today’s “where’s the __” reveal. Above the fold I’ll show the original photos, and then click “Read more” at the very bottom to see the reveals.

From reader Barn Owl: there’s a stick insect here:


And a hidden grass moth from reader Gabe McNett:

    Found the stick insect, missed the moth by a metre… never mind I’ve had breakfast.

    Had it been a peppered moth, I would have spotted it.

      I’ve got one of a peppered moth somewhere – but it’s on granite, so a bit obvious.

    Ceiling Cat help you indeed!

    Some walkingsticks spray an irritating chemical when disturbed – not sure about this species, but I wasn’t going disturb it to find out.

    The Walkingstick was easy. I never got close to the moth.

    Very cool stick insect, Barn Owl!

    Gabe, not that it would have helped, but where was this pic taken? The actual moth was one of the candidates I had in mind, but even after some contemplation I wasn’t sure!

    Now that the reveal is up (no, I didn’t find it) I’m not sure the moth is a Crambid. It looks more like a Scoparidae to me.
    Where was the photo taken? I do not know much about North American moths so I may be wrong if there are Crambids that look like this over the Pond.

    Saw the walking insect right away but the moth? Squat!
