I have been to the Butterfly Conservatory near Niagara Falls many times - beautiful creatures. It reminds me of something I read about Joshua Davis, one of his methods for coming up with colour schemes is to take a photograph like those above, blur it and sample colours from that.


Heh. I agree that it's probably extremely beautiful but I have a massive fear of butterflies landing on me. I have no idea why, they're not dangerous or ugly or slimey. They're a bit unpredictable and fuzzy. I don't really know. But my grandma took me to a butterfly house once and I was terrified. Utterly.


My sister has a paralyzing phobia of butterflies because when we she was young, our father told her the antennas of butterflies were razor sharp, and could slice anything it touched.

20 years later the idea has stuck with her and she's scared stiff of butterflies.

I just have a phobia of big insects. Butterflies have big flapping wings..
