Nature: Butterfly on Cosmos, Normal Color Vision

"The butterfly is a flying flower, The flower a tethered butterfly.” ― Ponce Denis Ecouchard Le Brun. I purchased my first digital camera in 2004, a small compact digital, for the sole purpose of having fun photographing flowers. Although my vision, technique, and equipment have evolved through the years, one of the great joys in my life remains being in the garden, photographing the flowers and animals there. (An aside: I had planned to present these images as diptychs. However, the preparation of diptychs removed the EXIF data, required for this competition. Therefore, each image in a pair is being entered separately.)
