Blackwork - Monument Valley Interpreted

As promised, here are a couple pictures of my current project called 'Monument Valley Interpreted.  

And as stated in an earlier post, blackwork takes a long, long time.  But it's coming along.

Yes, I love the teeny-tiny details of blackwork.  Alot.  And it's a good thing since the stitches are really teeny-tiny!  I don't expect this project to be done for probably close to a year.  At least that's what I'm thinking at this time.
 Oh wait!!!  How did these pictures from today's bike ride get on this post??!! ha ha  No, I just feel the need to share everything with you!
 After I had photographed the butterfly, I saw this picture on a billboard in the Oak Garden.  It says that this butterfly is in danger of becoming extinct.  I'm really excited that I saw it.
The above picture isn't so great but if you enlarge it, you can really see the hairy edge.
 I'm not sure what kind of flower this is.  It's part daisy, part sunflower.  Whatever it is, there are plenty of them and they are gorgeous!
