V2 leaves me speechless - so close - so well done
8 Jan 2013 10:48AM
Another fabulous image, Carol! I love the almost sepia tones, and the details and clairty, especially in the wings, is phenomenal! It's perhaps a tad too close to the left margin, but you could always stretch the background a bit farther off.

Lucky you getting out - it's been so cold here, and now finally we are going to get a whole lot of rain - it's thundering, lightning, and heavy downpour right now. Hope I get to keep my internet connection.

Wonderful detail here, especially in the wings.
