I smile when I find these summer beauties together on the trail: Yellow buttercups (ranunculus nivalis) and blue butterflies (polyommatinae). Inspired by summer treks in Folldal and Rondane National Park, Norway, this whimsical illustration was also conveniently well-timed for Colour Collective’s dual-colour prompt: Dairylide Yellow & Dark Sky Blue.
