Artist's Description

As I was coming up to a sharp curve along the steep canyon … I gasped and shouted “STOP!”. Speechless, I jumped out of the truck and stood there, unable at first, to take it all in.

The shimmering hillside, alive with orange fritillary butterflies …. newly hatched … partaking of a feast fit for royalty; the nectar of these soft purple bachelor buttons.

No. My camera could not capture the whole marvel of it all. The scene demanded sharing, and thus the composite was created. Composite – 3 layers
