The mini fasteners add the perfect touch. It makes it look like it’s hung in a museum or something.

When I was in junior high and asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I said 'entomologist' - probably because of a 4-H project I was doing. Your specimens are much more colorful than the drab images available at the time.
