I'm still marveling at how you froze the wings the way you did!

But it is neat that they're transparent like that. I wonder if that helps with camouflage... I guess it would... the dark parts would just look like a shadow on whatever surface was behind (under?) him.

So there's no yellow in the wings? Just the flower? Cool!

Oooh, I like this a lot... At first I thought the wings were damaged, but the pattern of opacity is symmetric. *pokes Mojo's comment* I wonder how this helps the creature, evolutionarily speaking.

Happy WW!
