Inspiration Avenue: Butterflies

This digital collage was inspired by a trip we took last fall to the Butterfly Garden display in Wheaton, Maryland. The background is from a photo I took there, as is the sign (to which I added the "please" and "thank you"). And a very pleasant woman who worked there did, in fact, check us for hitchhiking butterflies before we left!

Sherry, your butterfly girl is beautiful. Our botanical garden also checks for hitchhiker butterflies. I think our sign says please.

Sherry,
What a wonderful collage. I really love all the color in this collage.
If you and I collect paint swatches. We could post back and forth on our art as we create. What do you think?

Adorable butterflies to go with the beautiful gal. At our Botanical Gardens there is a butterfly house that has a similar sign. I like the memory you helped create. And congrats on winning last week's IA challenge.
