What is this?
We're not sure what the occasion is. Nor whether the owner would need some kind of permit. (But if a permit is indeed necessary, it should be created to scale. Come on. Commit to it.)

If a permit is necessary to ferry an enormous dragonfly on your vehicle, then that is an abuse of power. I insist that everyone carry oversize, winged insects on their cars, w/o permits, in protest.
