Long-Horn Beetle in disguise as an ugly stick

We chanced upon this weird looking thing at Macritchie and took several moments to figure it out.
It flattened and straightened itself out to give minimal exposure to it surroundings.

After a while, I stimulated it with a leaf, and presto, it transformed in to a Long-Horn Beetle, a beauty that is a lifer here for me. :lol:
