flutterby

Photobucket
on a recent visit to the walters art museum, i was fascinated by the butterflies on display in the chamber of wonders and had the idea to make my own, illustrated specimens. parnassius apollo (above) is the prototype. i hope to make a few small collections and hopefully find some attractive-looking riker mounts to display them in.
