Another bird---





Just seeing if I can't incorporate lessons from ‘technical origami’, here in the form of point-split feet, within the overall simpler, streamlined language that I still believe is more appropriate for birds in origami.

This model is under 30 steps long.

From a weird variation of the Preliminary Fold, which instead of dividing the center into 8 x 45 degrees, divides it into 12 x 30 degrees. More on this later.

I like so much figures that are simple and looks good. I think that your figures are all pretty and this bird is not the exeption. I want to see "another insect", they take a lot of steps.

Excuse me my bad English

Thanks Anon, an honest response is always appreciated. As to insects, I'm afraid I have no feeling for them, but there are certainly others who have: see for instance
