They look good.

 

What did you use for the wings, and where did you get it?

 

Thanks for posting.

Right - I know the what; meant the where. At one time I had hundreds of the most beautiful, webby stuff. Used it all up on Adams and Mosquitoes, though. Tough to get now. Hoped you'd found a good source.

 

Keep tying.
