Wallflower Butterfly

I was thinking of Spring again today, and since it's not warm and sunny outside I decided to continue with happy, Springy art to help pass the time until the real thing arrives. I took the reference photo for this piece last spring. This butterfly came along and posed so gracefully for me while I was photographing the flowers. I call it the Wallflower Butterfly not because he's shy, but because that's the kind of flowers that it landed on!

  1. The colors are wonderful...will it ever be that cheerful outdoors? I guess I'm a little gloomy today. Thank you for brightening my day.

  2. I really like this one, the colors just pop.
