If I Were a Bug I Could Do This:




More specifically a Caddis Fly. These bejeweled creations are a collaboration with Caddis Flies (which are closely related to butterflies) and artist/naturalist, Hubert Duprat. Caddis flies are aquatic, normally live in streams and spin protection for their larvae from silk, incorporating materials from the stream bottom into the capsule. Herbert Duprat, takes it a step further by taking these creatures and giving them different materials in which to spin their magic. These are some of their creations. All of this begs the question, which is the artist; Duprat, the flies or Mother Nature? You be the judge.
