Three Muses: Insects

Today I saw a butterfly bush at my local library.  I hadn't even known it was there. I was sitting in my car, arranging my library books on the seat, and saw some movement out of the corner of my eye. There was a butterfly...then another...then another. I sat there watching for quite a while, seeing more and more little wings the longer I looked. Here's my digital interpretation of what I saw. Butterfly bush image is from google; butterflies are from graphicsfairy. Various PSE effects and filters used.

Lovely, I have a butterfly tree right outside my lounge window and it is always filled with butterflies when in flower.

Living proof that beauty is all around us -- even at the library! We have a bush outside our sunroom that attracts butterflies of late, and we're enjoying it as well. It sits beside the hummingbird feeder, so we get a double-whammy of God's beauty every single day. I love your art, Sherry!
