Let's go outside!

I had a couple of lovely visitors this afternoon while working outside, painting little birdcages...

I doubt it was the smell of paint that attracted this little guy, but he just came right down to one of the birdcages, as if wanting me to take his picture. I, of course, did not have a camera nearby. This photo is merely a Photoshopped recreation of the little spectacle I missed. It did perch on a birdcage just like this, I swear! Oh, and I later found out that the black butterfly with white spots is commonly known as the Eggfly butterfly.

Not long after my failed attempt to return outside in time, camera in hand, to catch my mysterious visitor, another fluttering friend came along. This one had blue wings, smaller than my eggfly friend, but equally pretty. He wouldn't open his wings for the camera, though. :( He finally did when he flew away. *sigh

Oh, and meet Scott! (here, stalking the door)  :)

Sudden Inspiration

Yesterday, I was flipping through a business magazine when a photo of a man wearing what appeared to be a teddy bear cape on his head caught my eye. I immediately got out my little doodle pad and, minutes later, came up with this:

The little spheres were added digitally much, much later. I still haven't thought of a title for this, though...
