OSU Colors

Posted by

Orange and black are the Oregon State University colors (I think of them as Halloween colors). So I was obligated to post an orange and black butterfly. I like the water drops on the flower.

The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.

The butterfly appears transparent against the flower. crisply clear. Love those water drops.
