Whenever I find a poor butterfly in the pool (or any bug), I always try to net it out in hopes the little guy will make it. Two weeks ago, there was a monarch. I thought he was going to be okay, but I found him a few days later dead among the orchids (He will be used in a belt buckle eventually). The pic is from when I first pulled him from the pool.
The little tiger wing I found today isn’t looking so hot though. He’s not moving much, but I keep hoping he will make it. After sunset, he’s barely moving at all, just an occasional twitch, so I brought him inside… Poor little guy. He will be immortalized in art, though it’s little conselation to him. 😦
In the mean time, I thought I’d try my hand at colored pencils again. I still need lots of practice with them, but the tiger wing seemed easy enough to attempt. It came out okay.
Still feel like doing more art tonight, but not sure what. I’ll let you know if/when I decide on the next project.
