An Update: The actual names of these two insects was provided to me by a very nice lady who works for the Museum of Natural Science and the correction has been applied.
Actually, it is called the Cockrell Butterfly Center and Insect Zoo, but I have always heard it as the Butterfly Wing of the Museum. At any one time, it seems like there may be thousands of butterflies in this enclosure and in this particular panorama, we see a museum volunteer holding a Orange Giant Prickly Stick with Green Moving Leaf insect on his chest. Additional information concerning a Giant Prickly Stick can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extatosoma_tiaratuma and information for the Green Moving Leaf is here: tinyurl.com/nyccbx
Note: The Orange Giant Prickly Stick is from Australia and the Moving Green Leaf is from Malaysia.

This panorama was taken hand-held with a Nikon D70 camera using a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens and attached to the camera was a SB800 flash unit.
