This little guy is very deceiving: much harder than it looks! Lots of pitfalls to fall in. If two pieces fit together, it doesn't mean at all that these pieces are meant to be connected together: some knobs act as universal connectors! There were a lot of back and forth, trying and huffing and puffing. Wavy edges, but guess what: a piece with a wavy edge is not necessarily an edge piece. I felt like an ape in a laboratory with scientists behind a one-way mirror timing my poor performance. Mind you, it was not wasted time: I enjoyed every bit of it. Thankfully, shadows help to orient the pieces (this is where you realize that insects are super symmetrical!). Also, if not sure of a connection between two pieces, turning over the connected pieces may give a clue if it's a false positive or not. Though, some pieces could be on either side (background for example). There is also the strategy of connecting the obvious (by shape of the pieces or by image), and flip it over to fit accordingly the image you are working on. Kudos to Christine (see below) for solving this puzzle without looking at the image! I personally have not reach this level, I still need the image as a crutch. It's such a good opportunity to spend time looking at a gorgeous image, I am a real fan of Jan van Kessel's art, I really recommend his other Artifact puzzle "Butterflies" ("Shells" is also on my to-do list). Thank you Artifact for introducing me to great Masters! Here, the berries are so full of life, as if they are about to burst: this in itself, is a Master Class in how to apply white-out to bring a flat image into 3D. And the green caterpillar's dots glisten as if they were jewels... so amazing, it makes me *almost* fall in love with bugs! Nature is brought to new heights in this painting. So much fun, and good to teach you a lesson of awe and humility, and show you that with patience nothing is impossible.
