Crab Apple gone Native

Here is a Crab Apple with a light brown fall tree leaf as a carapace and tree twigs as legs. The legs are covered with soft body which reinforces the legs. I can break the legs to creat more joint appearance... the fly will probably not last that long..but long enough to work..... and the best thing is that the material is FREE!

John,
If you are looking for more of that "special materials" for the crab fly body - I have a HUGE supply around my house...and in the driveway, and on the sidewalk...Come by and help yourself - you'll have to take the whole lot though! I'll give you a good price


Nice work on this & the skate :thumbsup:

No Asley... this sinks like the other crabs since my weight is a little bigger than usual.
