What is it with me and my fascination for making bugs?
...and dragonflies and butterflies? :)

I used a chair leg for the body on this one...

I was actually tempted to keep this one for myself, 
but I put him in the shop and he's already flown away.

That same day, I made this bug too.

The top of the body is part of a wooden lamp base cut in half and I attached
part of a wooden candlestick base to the bottom, 
he was pretty big, and fat.
