Death's Head Hawkmoths

Recently I reared five Death's Heads from egg to adult, the caterpillars were fed on privet and I have now framed two of the adult moths, (male above, female below)

Some photos showing the spreading and drying process prior to framing the specimens, the wings, body, legs and antennae are in position with pins. 

Fimo Sloth Skull

Not 100% accurate, I know, but it's a first attempt for me at making a skull replica with Fimo polymer clay. Based on a young Sloth skull, with separate lower jaw, painted with acrylic.
