    Hello SSC friends!!
    Spring is almost here and I found an interesting insect in my garden.
    This Dragonfly has a considerable wing span and a very wasp-like slim waist.
    Carved out from a natural fork of Pyrenean oak (Quercus pirenaica), it was finished with linseed oil and beeswax. This Dragonfly will sadly depart my home, on a journey to Canada. Hope its new owner find it a good companion.
    Cheers ...Q

      Absolutely amazing! That's not your everyday piece of oak. Looks like it has its own spirit inside it. Very nice Q!

      That's just BEAUTIFUL! I love it, and am proud to be the new owner. I'll post a thread this weekend for the one that I've been working on. Hopefully you won't be disappointed!
