Does any one have any good ideas how to do insect wings, when the bug is flying, I can't realy come up with any good ideas

If the insect is at rest then a 2d pollygon of a wing would do. If you are tying to simulate flight then I would suggest making a pollygon perpendicular to the insect the size of the arch of the wings and adding a animation of it flying.

go find a big fly and smack it down.. rip
off its wings and scan it. Then apply
a transparency to it and map it to the
part that would be the insects wings.
make a simple animation loop for the
two wings that flaps rapidly and put
a slight motion blur on the wings..

I can imagine simple bump mapping on
a good scan of a fly's wings would look
pretty good if you had to do closeups
