Bug & Bee Bowling Balls

I put a nice clear coat on Melanies second lady bug.  She had started a Bumble Bee, getting yellow stripes on it.  I thought it would look cool on a spike, to give it the illusion of flying.  I bent a piece of rebar to hold the ball with bee stripes still vertical, painted the black stripes, and made some bumble bee wings.
 
 notice the antenae Melanie made!
