Monarch Wings or Tiffany Lamp? by 

Closeup of the wings of a Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) at the Butterfly Rainforest, part of the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. By turning the original image and making it black and white, I thought it resembled a Tiffany lamp!

Original image:

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
