It was about 2cm long, the smallest we've ever seen in person; it's standing on the end of my thumb in the pics below.
I think the Lovely R did really well to capture this busy little beast in godawful light with his macro lens extension, particularly since it kept busting out its wobbly stick-dance.
Happily, there seem to be more phasmids in our yard every time spring rolls around in the last few years. Some adults overwinter, but it's generally a new generation mimicking the foliage on your native flora, which, along with increasing bird numbers, says a few encouraging things about our local environment. If you still use pesticides in your garden or around the house, please give a thought to everything that will be affected by them.
A little restraint can work miracles.
