..... I was greeted by this green monster on the glass of the doorway. I've no idea what it is - I'm not a fan of insects and the like!
It's hard to get an idea of size from the photo, but it's body was about 7cm long. Stick insects and mantises I see quite regularly in the summer, but I've not seen such a creature as this in the garden before. Can't say I'm sorry about that, either!
