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.
