"Jersey Tiger" suggests links with Issey Miyake the haute couture knitwear designer,especially since he created the Cocoon Coat in 1976 - a vast knitted triangle. It would give a great pattern motif, so find your needles..........possibly?

Not sure I have seen a Jersey Tiger before. Nice find. I love seeing all your photos of nature, and wondering how your Ground Hog Day is going so far?

Brown Eyes
Thankyou so much,the butterfly is rather large for a nymph,but I used a
little poetic licence!!:)
Nice to hear from you.:)

Breathtaking said...

Janie

I'm so pleased you like my nature photos Janie
