Pampas Grass: Bugs and Bees

Pampas Grass: Bugs and Bees. This is a continuation of my attempt to use more natural elements in my composition. These are actual beetles and a bee that have been well dried out and then coated with PVA wood glue. The bee was too fragile to use without some protection, so I used a button cover wrapped in black tulle for protection. The beetles are quite hard and should hold up during exhibits. This wall hanging is really not made for sale, but I would like to enter it into exhibits and even competitions. Since this will be a big experiment, we will see how it finally finishes out.
