Bugs and magnolias

While still in 'insect' mode, I came across these photographs, by Kari Herer, on etsy. She has combined the magnolias with old illustrations of flowers and bugs.

I just love the way the flowers become part of the drawing and visa versa. These drawings really put my attempts at botanical sketches to shame. I also like the way they are so systematically arranged. How on earth did she find EXACTLY the right size flower for every drawing! Finally, white is my favourite colour.

I really want one of these photographs!
