Artist's Description

This has gotta be one of the best photos I have ever taken. This will probably always be a staple of my portfolio.

Taken under quite natural conditions, despite the studio look. I was shooting into the sun, but with deep shadow directly behind the butterfly. This is one of the extremely rare cases where I used autofocus to take a macro shot. The butterflies were fast, and there was a light breeze that was making the flowers sway slightly.
