This 5×7 print hangs above the antique desk in my gallery.
More than one visitor has commented about the “preserved” butterfly …. they have all seemed genuinely surprised when I showed them that it is a photograph.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.
