1.    Draw a cocoon-shaped oval for the body, and add two feathery antennae.
2.    Carefully (and lightly) draw one fore wing.
3.    Carefully (and lightly) add the other fore wing.
4.    Draw the hind wings, with their long tails. Go slowly; turn your paper if it helps you draw the curves.
5.    Add wing veins, spots, shading and texture. (If you have colored pencils, shade it a light green color. The large costal vein is maroon.)
