I have a butterfly bush next to the window of my tea room, and spend a lot of hours sipping tea and sketching butterflies and moths.  This butterfly had such a graceful stance, and even though it isn't one of my better drawings, I was especially pleased with it's ballet leg positions, and proboscus.  I thought it interesting that the eyes were that normal??!

This is nice! How long did it take you to sketch this?

This butterfly sat nicely for about 10 minutes, so I got the basics during that time, then, as it fluttered about, I put in the about 20 minutes. Nature is never one to cooperate!
