A very quick visit to the Butterfly House in St Louis, Missouri on Friday garnered a few photos. The light wasn't fantastic, and the subject matter flighty, and unable to sit still for this photographer! Luckily a few of these gorgeous tropical creatures were recently hatched and sitting still drying their wings. This beauty is called a "Paper Kite" and to see and feel them whizzing about my head was quite extraordinary!
I've simply used two layers of Kim's 'Evolve', (thought that was appropriate) and masked out just the head and body of the butterfly.
I have not been able to identify this beauty yet, but he stood still for me for the longest time. I've treated this photo with a layer of Kim's 'DearDreamer' at 100% soft light, a layer of 'DearDreamer' with the postmark at 52% multiply, and a layer of 'Revolution' at 100% multiply with a layer mask in the center of the photo on each layer.
That's it for this week!
