@rem_la: Yes, the flower and insect both set me off in that direction. Thanks for your comment!

Now I am dazzled, trying to figure out what the flower is and ASTOUNDED at the creature posed on the posey. Can it be so? You have surely been given opportunity to bless us all in tiny ways, colorful ways, details missed in a rush thru life, and in the character you display as you portray life in art or is that art is life? Wow, Dulcie, each day more bountiful. We do run out of words as you display your love daily for us. I cannot wait to take the laptop to Mom to see your treasures. She would not be so wilted with these shows...

@wendy: Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the flower OR the insect, which looked like a little white speck of lint to my naked eye. I just snapped away and felt inspired when I saw what nature had created. Thanks for your abundant appreciation!

Nice blur, almost fairy, bug and flowers are almost translucid ! Makes me think of some microscopic rendering !

Wow! What a very mystical and fairy-like image! The colours are splendid and what detail on the insect, as well as the wee follicles on the petal and leaf. Amazing! What flower is this?

@Sarah: Can't identify flower or insect---but so glad they were there when I needed them. :-)

JM Barrie would have loved this for an illustration in Water Babies books. Yes, the mystical magical fairy dust style is touching my child's soul. Thank you for those who spoke those words to Dulcie re this insect. What is that flower? I am still guessing. And the creature?

The colors are wonderful, nice tight composition, and the blur combined with the "fuzz" on the flower and leaf are really satisfying. Marvelous!

@Cynthia: And your comment is very 'satisfying' as well. Thanks so much!

One tripped out bug, these colorist interpretations work well, though "movement" is my favorite so far. best...jerry
