One of these has been rewarded: "aquatic insects" has been drawed in the same board but with different painting techniques. The butterfly Zerynthia polyxena and is feeding plant is maden in watercolor; Hydrous piceus and  Dytiscus marginalis (male and female) is a mixed with watercolor and gouache in overlapping layers.
