I made this fake magazine cover using Fd's Flickr Toys from
Not a real magazine of course.
This was my entry in this week's challenge by the Monday Photo Challenges and Thursday Retreads ( ) group on Flickr. The challenges are varied and keep a photographer thinking and experimenting.
this week's challenge was to find one of your photos taken last week that you would like to see on a magazine cover.

For the Monday Photo Challenge-Floral/End of Summer- This butterfly is getting the last drops of nectar in preparation for fall , when egg-laying is its last job in the life cycle. The pollen distributed by the butterfly will be spread throughout the area, and contribute to the new flowers of next Spring and Summer.
