Found this interesting 3-wing emerger pattern on facebook and thought I would have a go at it. The original image was not particularly detailed, so I winged it in terms of execution. Since this was the first attempt some of the details came out a bit wrong, but I like the overall idea behind this one.

The top view: there is a lot of deer hair in this one, it should float very good
