That's really REALLY buggy!  I'd hate to have something like that crawling up my arm.  Great job mike.

What was the feather used for the legs?

 

Good looking tie. That would make a great scud pattern in grey for my local waters.

Micke... have you decided what to call this bug?  It need's a name, as I predict a lot of us are going to try to copy it.  I filed it under "Micke's bug"  but that's not very glamorous.  How about "Micke's Monster"?  Any other ideas guys?

Call it a "Scud" ... since that's basically what it is.  It's a good looking scud, for sure, but it's not a "new" pattern.

Not sure Emu feathers are prevalent in the US, maybe ostrich herl would work ?
