Photomanipulation: Butterfly on Flowers

I was playing with Photoshop today and photomanipulated this.  It should look like a realistic butterfly perched on a watercolor-ish flower cluster.  What do you think?

The butterfly is a Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta).  I’m not sure what the flower is, but it’s one of those common landscaping flowers you see in planters and beds all over the place.  I took this photo at a mini-golf course last summer in Sister Bay, Wisconsin.

Macro Photos of Flowers

I just came back from a family trip up to Wisconsin.  Since the kids wouldn’t have the patience to wait for me to draw pictures of the things I saw, I took photos instead.  Even that tried their patience a bit, but they lived through it.  🙂

Here’s a collection of close-up flower shots I took.  Both garden flowers and weed flowers.  And three that aren’t actually flowers, but they are plants.  I don’t know what all of them are, but if you recognize one that isn’t labeled, let me know.

Some of these are available as prints.
