A Different Kind of Walking Stick

While hiking Wellesley Island in the 1000 Island region of the St. Lawrence River, I took a break underneath a tree to watch the water for a few minutes.
When I stood up, I went to brush a stick from my shoulder and found this walking stick insect.

The Parade of Horses

There are over 500 horses on Mackinac Island during the mild months. They are the literal work horses of the island doing everything from pulling visitors in large wagons on tours of the island to shuttling carts full of fresh supplies from the docks.

In November, all of these creatures are shuttled off of the island by ferry to take the winter off on farms on the mainland.
