Artist's Description

A man made pond located in a wooded glade in the Valley of the Butterflies (Petaloudes) on the Greek Island of Rhodes. The pond is fed by a small waterfall.

Petaloudes lies approximately five kilometers south east of the village of Theologos (or Tholos). During August, thousands of butterflies of the genus Panaxia (species Quadripunctaria Poda) overwhelm the valley in order to reproduce.

Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese group of islands.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi in the USA)
