These kaleidos are made from macro photographs of butterfly wing scales. I made them in December last year, after Rob (robryan) posted some photos, leading me to explore. They are the most amazingly beautiful things. Thanks to Rob for providing the inspiration!!

You can see some examples of photographs of them here:

I use freely available images and a variety of programs to make my kaleidoscopes, colour the backgrounds and assemble them into a collage. All of which takes around 2 hours.

It gives me immense pleasure making them, and I hope it gives you pleasure solving them. :-)

Why, thank you Char! And I can't imagine making these images and NOT sharing them! They need to be sent out into the world. LOL I'm glad you enjoyed them. :)))

Thanks so much Sandi! I have to confess to having a soft spot for that coppery top left too!! I'm so pleased you like this one. :)))

Beautiful. It was hard to pick favorites this morning, but the upper left is it. I love that color. The bottom center is a close second. Great puzzle. Thanks very much.

After finishing this larger version, I think I'll add the upper left copper to my faves, Kirsten. Again, thanks for a lovely collage. :-)
