I came across this forest roach on a field trip. I could not help but laugh as it was in this unusual position kicking its legs up in the air. It seemed like it was having fun. After I took the picture I wondered how it got into this "yoga pose". I looked closer and realized that its shell was actually stuck to the leaf. Where the "glue" came from or how it got it on its shell is still a great mystery. Anyway, I relieved it from its predicament by pulling it off and let it go.
