Solar dragonfly

solar dragonfly

Fossil. August 2005

Fossil is a vary large solar powered mechanical dragon fly.
In sunshine the wings will periodicly flutter and the mouth section twitches.

Length: 28cm. Wing Span: 33cm.

Fossil is so named because as I constructed it I was thinking of Meganeura,
a huge 320 million years old dragonfly-like insect belonging to the Protodonata group,
which had a wing span of around 70cm.
