Interesting bug I had never heard of. If it wasn’t for the eyes, it really looks like part of a plant. Nice detail of the business end of it.

Amazing, Leigh,
You’ve come a long way with this technique since the peacock feather post!

Impressive looking critter! Love the detail and "expression"...if you can say that about a bug. Well done!
