Leanne M.E. Boyd March 05, 2005

Kathleen, Donald, Anita, Kara, Terry, Laurence (Happy Birthday by the way), Theresa, and Robin; Thanks so much my friends, for your kind comments.

This was fun to do, while shooting I had to wsit, for the butterfly to swing to just the right place. Then in PSE2, I had to remove the rest of the garden, greenhouse ect, from the background. The first time I tried this, I had the background black, and it brought out the amber colouring and reflections, but it wasn't much fun. So I tried the high key, with some diffused glow, and magic - the little fellow came alive. #1149968

Intrigue was my first impression and it made me stop to look...that was good! I avoided reading the caption at first until my imagination could not begin to decipeher what my eyes were seeing. A picture has to make you want to stop and look at it. You succeeded in a grand way. #1260869
