Those are great Mary. Really like the first one and the last one. The last one reminds me of a snowflake.

Hope you don't mind but I tried a B&W conversion on the first one, I think I like yours better. If you don't like it I will delete.

thanks for the feedback guys! i think it looks quite nice in b/w. i love that statue, looks like me as a little girl, sans the spikey hair! i wanted the 3.5 foot tall version i drool over every time i am at my local favorite nursery, but she cost $350. so i had to settle on the smaller version for $75. i am going to stain her (myself) with concrete stain to give her (me) a more older/vintage look.

thanks again guys. and i must say this is really a nice group of people on this forum!

had one of the monarchs hatch on saturday. just missed it. came home from daughter's college graduation to find her on the patio trying to dry out wings and get her sea legs. there are 5 more that are any day now. hopefully will be able to catch a few. also still have some caterpillars so hopefully will have a few more chrysalis's.

When I was a little kid, I kept a little pupa like this. When it was ready to hatch, I took it outside to watch a beautiful black butterfly emerge, then immediately get eaten by a lizard...one of the most traumatic childhood memories.

Mary, great series of shots! I absolutely love the sun and shadows on #1; it's beautiful!

#5 reminds me of a klaidescope!
