There are two definitions of the word Scale that I am representing within my galleries today.
The first is to do with proportion and representation:
The ratio between the size of something real and that of a model or representation of it.
The beautiful Indian Leafwing
The second is what you will find in the close-up Details:
a) one of the thin, flat, horny plates forming the covering of certain animals, as snakes, lizards, and pangolins.
b) one of the hard, bony or dentinal plates, either flat or denticulate, forming the covering of certain other animals, as fishes.
