A Flicker of Inspiration: Beautiful Butterflies

I really love using Flickr. Not only is it filled to the brim with amazing photographs and art, but there are so many fun things that you can do with it. Today, I thought I would create a mosaic with a few of my favorites, and share it with you. Perhaps these lovely colors and shapes will inspire your next great project!

  2. I love this a wonderful selection, I find all the colours so fascinating!

  3. Thank you! I can only take credit for finding them, of course. Flickr is home to some really amazing photographers.

  4. Such stunning creatures! We went recently went to the butterfly exhibit here in town and it was so amazing to see them flying all around and having them land on us.

  5. wow - thank you Mortira, I love butterflies, they inspired my lavender/lilac soap! ♥

  6. They're so great, aren't they? I love the way seeing a lone butterfly can totally change the mood of your entire day. I wish I had a big yard that I could fill with plants for butterflies and other pollinators!
