Wings (x-posted)

I'm trying to create a bug robot from scratch and I'm trying to figure out the best way to make the wings. I'm dissecting another toy robot so I got wings..but they dont move. Thats not the point.

I have seen butterfly bugs with moving wings but those are made with muscle wire. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas involving a motor to make the wings move? Any system of gears that would at least make the wings move using the energy from a motor?

I dont know if I made this clear at all, but any suggestions (tested or not, because I can find a way as long as I have an idea) would be very appreciated.
