Origami Birds

Whenever I talk about origami, people immediately think of origami birds. First of all, the paper crane is iconic to the art of paper folding. Second, there are so many ways to fold a paper bird! The main reason this is so is because a sheet of paper has four corners and these four corners are perfect for making one head, one tail, and two wings.

In contrast, making origami animals are a little more difficult because animals have a head, a tail, and four legs – you need more sections to make a paper animal. Origami insects are even more challenging since a realistic insect will have at least six legs, and two antenna.
