UST GS: Stick Insect - Master of Mimicry and Camouflage

Dr Abe V Rotor
Living with Nature School on Blog
Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid (People's School-on-Air) with Ms Melly C Tenorio

738 DZRB AM Band, 8 to 9 evening class Monday to Friday
Stick insect, UPLB Laguna

Mimicry and camouflage this insect's gift,
by nature's law of deceit and conceit,
compensation for the small, shy and weak,
and others no less, strength of the meek.

More than the tale of the pin in haystack,
the tiger's eyes in the forest at dark;
a lonely soul promenading in the park,
thousands at their bid living apart.

How empty it seems our world thus appear,
yet life is full with little in stir;
deeper the sense of stillness and fear,
that makes sweeter the reason to cheer. ~
