Thanks, Gail! :-)))
There are way too many to list here, but here's a site I just found:http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/about/faqs/animals/names.htmIt's hilarious.
How do they come up with these names? A murder of crows, a parliament of owls, a rabble of butterflies!!!Someone somewhere was having too much tadpole wine, I think... LOL!
Chalk it up to unending curiosity! I didn't think flock applied and had no idea what they are in a group. So I learned something new too
Thanks, whatnauts and Gail--I think they might brighten it up to the point of eye strain, though! LOL!And thanks, Wendy--we must have been posting at the same time, and I missed yours--my bad! :-)))
The new tricks up your sleeve should be let out for a walk every now and then. This is spectacular.
These are lovely storage boxes for discs. They would certainly brighten up the room :))))
Oh, my goodness, I didn't know that, Katie--what a strange name for butterflies! Love it--thanks for the education!You're very welcome, Mandy--and you, Lela, are very something entirely different...... :-DDD
Ah yes....I see straight away that this is a rabble of rectangular butterflies.....plus somewhere to leave your flip-flops.......
I googled what to call a group of butterflies....
This is wonderful, Pat... I love all the colour changes. It's also very kind of you to provide somewhere for me to store my floppies... :~)
Thanks, Francine, Ardy, and Katie. I love to share that info, especially when it gives me unexpected results, or when, as here, I did something I always do but then took it in a different direction. I'm getting more and more interesting results, I think, first, from using all the animation and then taking just one frame from it; second, from combining different programs (all LunaPic) that I haven't added together before, like mosaic tile plus emboss plus basket weave plus soft lighting. I hoped that mentioning discs would keep a certain mad mailer from trying to post anything here! And I love that description--my butterflies can be a rowdy bunch! :-)))
So, in essence, you're telling us that this is really a rabble of rectangular butterflies?
Pat, I hope everyone reads the title and doesn't try to post mail here instead. These are too pretty for mailboxes anyway. Thanks, Pat. Amazing what some of the programs can do. Almost make one believe black is white.
Pat, love the fact you share techniques with us - interesting. What a great program you're using.
Thanks so much, Katie! I did that mirror/copy that I use for my butterflies, but then I did the animation one where it changes the colors over and over, and I picked the stills I liked and put them together. The one in the lower right corner is actually my original colors as I was going to post them today, until I decided to give them one final tweak. The end result is like the Warhol effect that I used in the other loony, except that I chose all the squares myself. More work, but more fun for me, and more my own that way, too. :-)))
WONDERFUL! I LOVE this one, Pat!
This is really fun Pat! You're just full of new tricks today and I love it!
