Daffodils always remind me of Spring! liked the way this mandala formed a square with the elements of the flower. We are having a windy April here in Colorado, it’s blowing outside my window right now.

spring snow storm

We continue to have Spring snows in Colorado – the good thing is they melt fast! The last one flocked the trees with white and made this Celtic Cross look like lace in the middle – and the blue sky was really that blue!

colorful sunrise

I enjoyed the soft pastel colors in this picture and the geese flying. They really were in a ‘V’ formation as they went by, the kaleidoscope program made it into a tighter ‘V’.

delicate butterfly cross

A different butterfly in the cross shape. Spring is officially here! am now patiently waiting for things to green up and start blooming!

butterfly parts

There was a collection of mounted butterflies in a case at the Butterfly Pavilion, to include a Blue Morpho and the edges of a swallow tail. Because there are spaces between the specimens there are spaces in the cross shape that do not have butterfly parts as well. Thought I’d try this as an experiment.

the eyes have it

Always liked the “fake” eyes on butterfly wings, it distracts the butterfly’s prey and it makes for an interesting pattern in a mandala.
