"OK. She's good."

K did an archery demo last night at the library for the Hunger Games Party. She was a bit nervous, first time she's ever done a demo, about 30 kids and parents watching. She was shooting at 20 meters, outside, with a blustery wind.


Her first shot went wide, in the red (8). A girl in the crowd said, "Well, she's not that good."

The next shot hit dead center, 10X.


"OK, she's good."

K didn't even crack a smile, and put the next 4 in the yellow.


Then her Coach got out his compound bow.  10X at 40 meters.  


K whispered to him "Show off." They laughed.

Hunger Games! Origami Mockingjay.



I saw something similar on online and thought I'd give it a try.  This fold is very much like a dragon I like to make.  The head and the wings were easily done, but the tail frustrated me for quite some time.  Till I decided to step back, relax, and keep it simple.  It was very simple in the end, just an open and a few folds.
