A very fluttery diagram based on a butterfly's genetic code. ( I swear, this is what their DNA looks like!)

Love it, love it, love it!
Gorgeous work Cean, I love the clever idea, and the inclusion of the caterpillar and chysallis, I wanted to include some cocoons in my design but couldn't fit them in hahaha! I love your bright and breezy design and how you've worked the colours into some very pretty and dainty looking butterflies....yeah you are pretty too mr moustached butterfly!!
Awwww, pretty pretty!
Thank you everybody! I didn't want the prettyboy butterflies getting all of the limelight. Crusty old cocoons and grubby caterpillars deserve some love, too!
Wonderful, love the caterpillar and chrysalis.
Cean, these fragile flutterers wearing their fabulous finery look fantastic! I love the inclusion of the creeping caterpillars, even though grubs are not my personal favourites, as they remind us that beautiful things often come from unlikely beginnings!
Absolutely brilliant! Love this!
awesome...love the idea of metamorphosis running in their blood literally!
Cean, you've made these butterflies look extra colourful - just beautiful. I'm sure you're right and their DNA does look like this!
This is an awesome concept! Caterpillars and cocoons; genius!
I love that you worked the caterpillar and cocoon into this - and so many variants on the butterfly using all the colors. The wings could be seen as base pairs in a double helix. I have a soft spot for the dh (my biophysics degree was all about it).
Wonderful as always Cean! I like the colour mixing illusions very nice.
Wow! You made it look like we had more colors available to use! Beautiful butterflies and layout!
Woow.. I love, LOVE this one!

hahaha, that one does look like he has a mustache! I love the caterpillar and the cocoon too, great idea!
Nice rainbow-ish effect with the color combos. Very pretty!
Thasnk Kelly and Virginia. I'm trying to get my geek stats score up, though something tells me it's pretty high already.
Cean, this its so brainiacly smart! Fun design!
Gorgeous, what a unique idea, and you have illustrated it beautifully.
Thanks Lucinda, Catru and Sharon, and bonus to sharon for noticing the mustached fellow, genus: "WilfredusBrimleyus".
beautiful! Love how you added the cocoon and catepillar.
this is amazing!!! :)
wow ~ gorgeous. I love than one of the butterflies has a moustache ;) xxx
