I was out in my front yard laying on the grass taking pictures this evening, and kept getting looks like I was crazy, and even getting honked and hollered at in the process. I was about to head inside since I got ones that I really liked, when I saw this monarch butterfly sitting there. I just couldn’t pass it up, the lighting was perfect, and the butterfly didn’t move beyond opening and closing its wings.
I have been fairly stressed and anxious about the future and things like that lately. I know that I shouldn’t be, because my future is in the hands of the Creator. But it is so hard to completely give up that control. I hadn’t used textures in a while, but decided that it would be appropriate for this picture to give a sense of nostalgia.
