Dragonfly
About this creation
This is Derek Dragonfly I built him about 6 months ago and never got round to posting him. I thought he deserved an appearance on the 'Pages' before he's diasmantled for something new.







Suprisingly he stands up on his own six spindly legs.



His wings look like they're moving because they're out of focus.





















He looked a bit sad on a plain white background so I built a little scene with a rather large red and yellow flower and a lonely Bulrush (I would have built more if i had more green 1x1 round bricks).



Hope you like him!

Quoting Eragon Bromson The design is beautiful, the only thing i think could be different is the color scheme, i never seen a dragon fly with those colors.
They come in all different shapes and colours ;-) http://www.electric-image.co.uk/Wildlife/Odanata/odanata.html

Well this still looks great. The lego store should have them in the back. I get all of mine there, but bricklink is cheap too. http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?itemID=378&colorID=12

Very creative and colorful indeed. It would be even better if you could do the whole swamp. That would be awesome!

The colors used here are excellent, the subject is original and I love the detailing. Nobody that I've seen yet mentioned the flower that the insect is perched on. That is wonderful. I know that it would not be in the same scale, but have you considered using the transparent green dome parts with the many hexagonal facets as insect eyes?

Very nice! The proportions and the colour you used are great! The whole dragonfly looks very realistic!

Ha ha!! Sympathetic and cute, mostly with the beautiful little background. Did you build the fly-swatter to dismantle it?... I'M KIDDING!!!

The second close-up photo is my fav, it gives the impression of the wings moving at high speed. The overall build is very well done too. Awesome! ~Thoy

Quoting Green Ghost . This is great, but shouldn't the wings be white?
Thanks GG! Actually they should be transparent with loads of crazy hexagons on but black was the best I could do lol
