Northern Walking Stick: Diapheromera femorata

I caught up with this big bug today in the front yard. Diapheromera femorata, the Northern Walkingstick. I’d caught one back in the summer, and had thought I could preserve it and use it in a bug collection, but my patience and craft in that area haven’t been what they should be, so I thought I’d be better off photographing this one and letting her live.
