Blue.

By bricurtis
Blue.

This is a Common Blue from last year.
I liked it but it was cluttered - meant to do something with it but never did.
Got it how I want it looking now for a print.

Special thanks to > SlowSong > annettep38 > for UA's on previous.

Thanks for stopping by.

A super shot and so beautifully worked/processed: the blues stand out so well against the yellows and greens.
Will make an excellent print and I could imagine it as a greetings card, etc. too.

I like the natural background and the way you have dealt with it, Brian. I see an oval around the butterfly, formed by the flowers and acting as a frame.

I think you have done quite a job here Brian, the capture of the Butterfly itself is superb
and deserved the time and effort you have put in to create this image, excellent work.

Wonderful colours and processing Brian, I can see this image making a great greetings card and would look good as a print. However it is a male common blue and not a small blue, expect a bit of a ribbing from the Big O when he picks up on this!WinkGrin
