Dr Lyall's Fairy

Unidentified specimen collected by David Lyall 4/10. 1842. Glenshee, Scotland

Sorry for the delay, but I had to update this one before posting it here, This is now the third (and hopefully last) fairy to go in the jar, all improvements have been made and I'm very pleased with the result. For me It illustrates mans brutal relationship with nature and occupies the paradoxal (and utterly fascinating) line between science and magic.
