Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Wings

I am totally amazed that this creature can fly with that solid body and those nearly nothing wings!

An absolutely incredible photograph Penny. The wings are so very beautiful, with amazing patterns on their see-through fabric.
The body looks rather grotesque by comparison.
The insect world is truly astonishing isn't it?
Thanks, Ray. I know you're not a huge fan of insects, but they are fascinating creatures as evidenced by this particular specimen. Yes, the wings are so delicate and the body is clunky. I expect if I had wings, they would also be much better looking than the rest of me!
