Animal Wednesday - Orange Tip Butterfly

I was reading Cheryl excitement about finding a beautiful butterfly for the first time in her garden. It is an Orange tip. She has beautiful photographs of it on her blog. They inspired me to draw her treasure. It is done in colored pencil. I can't wait to find our first butterfly in the garden. It won't be one of these beauties. HAW to all.

Talented is the hand
that captured a delicate subject
infusing more grace in it
than it naturally had.
