Two portraits of little brown bats

This was something I started back in Feb and never got it to a point that I was happy with. While I was waiting for the new plum blossoms to dry, I got out the little brown bat and my cropping L's and started playing. And 3 hours later, I had cut it up into 2 smaller pieces, each focusing on one image instead of 1 larger piece with both images. The left is based on a Chinese papercut of a bat, it being an auspicious symbol; the one on the right is a slice of a fetus of a little brown bat, stained and viewed through a microscope. Two very different views of bats.
