Specimen #01108, 7/9/2000

Wingspan: 3.5 inches (9 cm)

Composition: Sterling silver wire, steel utility blades

Comments: The stinger is actually sterling wire that's been cut and filed to shape. I blackened the silver using hydrochloric acid, and the wings using "gun blue" gel. There are some speckles on the wings that don't show, in the scan.
