shot for 'the sunday challenge' group
a long way out of my comfort zone with this...why do butterflies not look good in black and white? :-)

careful with the bad language in TSC group stuff Jon...
People have been locked in and had the key thrown into the moat full of gators for far less.
:-)

so as a hint we use words like rainbows, butterflies, unicorns and sunshine here...

Welcome aboard Jon ... we do play well together here because Wendi would turn us into frogs if we didn't. lol

This is a lovely image. As for the difficulty in getting a good image of butterflies in b/w, I'm not sure but we did see a black and white striped butterfly on the butterfly bushes this afternoon. I have to look them up to see what kind they were, I hadn't seen one like that before. Chris
