WalkingStick has, in the past, described the two halves of such horizontal works (some are true diptychs, others single canvases) as representing the immediate visual memory as well as the lingering mental deposit of her encounters with nature.

 The Firefly Forest - Common Walkingstick   (Site not responding. Last check: )

Common Walkingsticks feed on the leaves of the trees and the shrubs that they hide in, and these slow, slender insects are generally not numerous enough here to cause any real damage to plants.
When seen up close, their mandibles may look a bit alarming, but Common Walkingsticks are not biters and not at all aggressive, although some kinds of Walkingsticks can produce a stinky fluid to repel potential predators.
