Welcome to LJ.
This is beautiful but you should post it as a project where it will get the attention it deserves.

Let me get my mind around this – the rock is wood?!? FANTASTIC!!!!! The butterfly is beautiful, but to put so much time and effort into making a realistic looking rock is incredible.
Great job, welcome to Lumberjocks. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
