My version of a dragonfly made from heart pine and hardware cloth. The pattern on his wings is from yellow and red telephone wire i salvaged and wove into the wire cloth. It’s approx 24” long and 38” wingspan.

PS: The wind machine in the background is one of many i’ve made from crazy found stuff. No wood though so you’ll just have to settle for being teased by it. :)

Thanks for looking!

That is fantastic! How did you get the wing materials so perfect? It sounds like awkward stuff to fool with…like one of those things that you come up with, and you are all excited …until 3 hours later, and you are growling and gritting your teeth…However long or short…it came out beautifully and was worth it!
