  1. I was about to say a walkingstick, but something about this photo makes me think it’s hanging on silk on the underside of a leaf and, therefore, must be a spider. Honestly, I’ve never seen a spider this long and narrow before, so I’m just taking a guess.

  2. Sara Rall says:

    how about an ogerfaced spider (Deinopsis sp.)? If it’s a walkingstick, mantis or katydid, though, I’m out.

  3. Regina Temple says:

    I would also say a spider that has it’s legs pulled together making it look like a stick.

  4. biozcw says:

    Argyrodes sp.? Maybe it is predator of other spiders.

  5. Alex Wild says:

    It’s a thin horizontal line in a field of green.

    Do I get any points?

      If I weren’t too lazy to actually award and keep track of points, then you’d probably get sarcasm points. 🙂
