I used an out-of-focus photo of two Monarch Butterflies I took at Homosassa Butterfly to experiment with, rather than delete it. The butterflies were occupying the same leaf – one on the top surface and the other underneath. Photomanipulation: I used a texture, filters, and various adjustments in Photoshop 7 to come up with this “different” image.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Beautiful work Dot, nice to be able to keep a blurred image and make it into something so pretty.

  • Thank you so very much, Rosie. I wasn’t sure about this, so I’m happy to have two nice comments on it. Sometimes I am too close to my own work and can’t be objective about it.
