Butterfly Collage


Please join Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

Here is my offering for this Monday. This butterfly posed so nicely for me that I was able to shoot many photos. You'll be seeing more of him/her in other posts. I love the way his shadow shows through the leaf!
Just click on the photo for a closer look.

This yellow begonia is my favorite flower of the summer. It is blooming in a planter on the railing of my deck. It survived being dug up twice by the resident raccoon.

Since I have not been very happy with my other mosaics made with Picasa, I put this one together by layering these photos onto a background in Photoshop Elements.

I love those lush and floppy begonias - I have a yellow one too. Your mosaic could simply be entitled 'Summer'.

I love your mosaic (collage). Too me a mosaic has a lot smaller pieces joining to make a design. The pictures are breathtaking.
