Lemon Wafer

By celestun
Detail of the wafer thin wing of an Owl-fly (Libelloides macaronius)...

I realise it is not the most artistic option, adding the life-size version of the whole creature...

... which you can compare in the larger 1000 pixel version

Comments and critiques most welcome!

You could see this in a book or something because of the almost tutorial nature of it. Great to be able to see the two like that.

Not too sure on him overlapping the border though - but then, that is a personal niggle of mine.

Good stuff.

Dunno how I missed this one. Never heard of an Owl fly before. Looks a stunning creature but don't think we can get them in the UK Sad

Do they only come in this colour? Very eye catching - anything with black and a primary colour goes down well with me! Smile

John thanks! Yes just this colour I'm afraid to say! You should see them fly, quite amusing, looks like two dragonflies joined together!
