I was vacuuming last week and found an insect wing on the floor. Hmmm.
Most people would vacuum up the wing without a thought, but my brain engaged.
I stopped vacuuming and carried the wing into the garage (aka my studio), got out my tripod, camera, and macro lens. Cleaned an old mirror and placed the wing on the mirror in front of a window. I started by propping the wing up with a glass glob. Took some photos.
I took a series of photos, and then picked one to work with in photoshop. I did some simple adjustments...removed some spots from the mirror, and played with the brightness and contrast slightly. This is the result:

I looked for a quote about broken wings on the internet, and decided to add some words from a Martina McBride song:
