 Take FlightTaking the butterfly conceit from my last animation even more literally. Here's the code: DynamicModule[{t = π/6., s, cols}, cols = RGBColor /@ {"#FA5555", "#F7FB76", "#8DED8E", "#2D7D8F"}; Manipulate[ Graphics[{FaceForm[None], EdgeForm[Thickness[.005]], Table[s = π/3. Haversine[2 r]; {EdgeForm[ Blend[{GrayLevel[.9], If[EvenQ[x], cols[[1]], cols[[2]]]}, 3 s/π]], Polygon[FoldList[ Plus, {Sqrt[3] (x + (-1)^x 2 Haversine[r]), 2 Sqrt[3] y + Sqrt[3] HeavisideTheta[(-1)^x]}, Table[{Cos[θ], i (3/4 + Cos[2 i r]/4) Sin[θ]}, {θ, Accumulate[{π/3, π/2, π/3, π/ 2}]}]]]}, {x, -9, 8}, {y, -4, 4}, {i, {-1, 1}}], Table[s = π/3. Haversine[2 r]; {EdgeForm[ Blend[{GrayLevel[.9], If[EvenQ[x], cols[[3]], cols[[4]]]}, 3 s/π]], Polygon[FoldList[ Plus, {2 Sqrt[3] y + Sqrt[3] HeavisideTheta[(-1)^x] - (3 Sqrt[3] - 1)/2, Sqrt[3] (x + (-1)^x 2 Haversine[r]) + (Sqrt[3] - 1)/2}, Table[{i (3/4 + Cos[2 i r]/4) Sin[θ], Cos[θ]}, {θ, Accumulate[{π/3, π/2, π/3, π/ 2}]}]]]}, {x, -9, 8}, {y, -4, 4}, {i, {-1, 1}}]}, PlotRange -> {{-9 - Sqrt[3], 10}, {-10, 10}}, ImageSize -> 540, Background -> GrayLevel[.15]], {r, 0., π}]]
