Buck and I were playing again at the Sugar Shack, just about to head down the sidewalk for sunset at the dock, when he said, "Look! It's a Spit Devil!"
Sure enough, there it was on the old door. I grew up hearing them called "Spit in your Eyes" or "Walking Sticks." They are also known as "Ghost Insects," and belong to the order Phasmatodea, meaning "an apparation or phantom."
