Stick insect nymph

Yesterday this little insect came inside on my jumper so I put it outside again on a camellia to take the photo.  I had no idea what it was so I sent the photo to Ask An Entomologist and they quickly told me that it was a stick insect nymph which would live on eucalypts and acacias.  Luckily for the little nymph there are plenty of those trees nearby.  What a great service Ask An Entomologist is!

Incidentally, if you look closely there's actually the tip of another insect between the two leaves but I have no idea what that one is.
