This summer we have had a lot of gophers, ground squirrels and rabbits enjoying our backyard. Unfortunately the yard has suffered but the critters are thriving. This image was inspired by all this activity occuring in our flower beds. Look carefully, the ground squirrels are just peeking up out of the flowers.
An image of flowers and one of ground squirrels used to create this summer scene. Flowers were digitally manipulated. Squirrel was copied and cloned into the image. Butterflies are Digea brushes distorted. Dry brush and rough pastels filters used. Other lighting and color adjustments.
