This funny looking character was a little reluctant to show himself off to the camera, I think he was feeling rather embarrassed because he had only one wing Smile

I can't imagine he will last very long with just the one wing, poor fella. But never-the-less a great set Carol, I love the way he slowly appears over the leaf. Super work all round.
