Remembering Butterflies

This week's lift design appears to Dick like balloons floating up. I looked for a set of photos to use and found I not gotten to some I took of an American Snout Butterfly in his brother's yard in Tulsa. I like them with this brown background and really like looking at butterfly pictures and remembering warmer weather. I like this particular one with its long "nose." They are more brightly colored above but can fold the wings and resemble a dead leaf.

I have finally finished my second larger drawing but I'm waiting for daylight to photograph it tomorrow.

  1. What an ugly name for a beautiful and, apparently very adaptable, butterfly. Still, what´s in a name? You´ve shown it here at its very best. Love the colours in your page to set it off and, yes, I agree that it does have a floating look to it. The swirl of orange manages to tie it all down and together.

  2. definitely has quite a snout on it. Wonderful mask and love the motion of the orange swirls. Reminds me of how hard it can be to get a closeup of a butterfly. Loving the warm colors. We got a dusting of snow last night and it's only to get to 36 F today...burr1

  3. Great photos of the butterfly... I miss seeing them, this past summer I saw so many of them, of course, never when I had my camera at the ready. It's pretty chilly and damp today... I think I am going to have to turn on the space heater! Your page turned out wonderfully, and I am looking forward to seeing your drawing. :)
