Monarch Butterfly watercolor photograph

Lately I find myself taking a more artistic turn with my photography.  I want to create photographs that look realistic and yet capture an artistic feel, not pushing the boundaries too far but moving in the direction of images that look more like paintings in some cases.  In this latest photograph, I think there's an interesting blend of the realistic (the Monarch butterfly) combined with a watercolor look to the milkweed flower and background. Almost like a watercolor photograph. Monarch_Butterfly_Feeds_On_Milkweed_Flower_In_Florida_IMG_4576.jpg
