Another local Texas find:

Sorry about the bad pictures, I'll try to get better photos up, I can't seem to get the flash to turn off on my camera... :blink:

The Observer wing is for comparison, and came from the "Frank Brothers Cache." Both are the type attributed to Bailey Banks and Biddle.

All,

As promised, here are some (slightly) better pictures. My photography skills, and the close-up limitations of my camera leave a lot to be desired.

The first picture I took with a piece of tissue paper over the flash to diffuse the light. It gives you a good idea about the details, but the color is somewhat exaggerated and there is still quite a bit of reflection:

What you can see though, is quite a bit of the original "frosting"
left in the nooks and crannies of the wings and shield


The second I took in natural sun-light, without the flash, and it gives a better idea of the overall color, but the details are fuzzy:

Hi Chris,

If you have a document scanner, like a HP, then use that. I scan most of my wings that way. It is quick and easy and you can avoid the problems with the flash.

Nice wings.

Patrick
