Nature in the garden

This incredible insect was resting on one of our outdoor chairs.I looks just like a eucalyptus leaf.

My husband did a bit of research in the internet and discovered that it is a childrens stick insect.

Its scientific name is Tropidoderus childrenii.  There are some beautiful photos on the internet.
