Tuesday Photo Challenge: Fantasy 2

Here we have a fairly subtle tweak of reality.
Here we have a more radical approach to the prompt Fantasy.

What the second photograph really represents is just a little fun, playing with some of the new features in Photoshop Elements 2020.

Devotion, November 22, 2019

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. Psalm 23

Butterfly, November 22, 2019

Photographed September 2 of this year, Truxtun Park, Annapolis Maryland.

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, one might be tempted to call this little fellow a moth, due to the rather unspectacular colors of its wings; however, it is clearly identifiable as a butterfly. This is because of the shape of its antenna. Moths have short, feathery antenna, while the butterfly’s is blessed with long, thin ones with a little bulb at the end- similar to the old-fashioned aerial on an automobile. Here is a link that explains other differences between moths and butterflies.

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Decorated

As the most highly decorated general in the King’s army, GarGar, le comte des deux chats, was often called upon to defend the nation in battle. On this particular occasion, as he led his army off to war, Princess Pirouette stood on the palace balcony with their two daughters flanking her, and waved a pink kerchief in the air to see him off.

With tears in her eyes, she cried, “Come back, my love! Come back to us!”
