Because I wanted to keep the delicate look of my original design, I decided to take inspiration from butterflies (which are also closely associated with flowers because of their relationship with them). The problem I then faced was how to tie these very different elements in with each other. Butterfly wings would not work with canine anatomy as they would never lift it for flight. The other funtion for such a feature would be as display.
I decided that a raptor-like body would work best because it is slender enough that it would communicate the insect aspect of the creature quite well and also because the arms would have the dexterity to lift up to display the butterfly wing sections.
