Inspiration is everywhere.

Butterfly 006

This enormous swallowtail caught my attention from indoors as it searched for nectar in my backyard. That gave me enough time to get the camera and capture its image before I watched it soar up into the tall oaks. I tracked it for another minute or two before it was gone forever.

I found cookie cutters in the shape of butterflies and moths. I have always been inspired by these creatures. Their colors are so improbable and their patterns living fractals. I have no idea why I felt this would be subject matter for a cookie, but that seems to be where the inspiration led me.


I have made many dozens of cookies inspired by these amazing INSECTS.
