Butterflies have to be a favorite of mine in the whole of the animal kingdom.  I know the elephant has it's size and girth, and the lion it's strength, and there are far cuter and cuddlier species that we'd all love to keep and own.  However, I love the butterfly.  Their beauty is unmatched in both vibrancy and splendor, reflecting far more colors than any rainbow.   All of it working together in a light-as-a-feather symphony of grace and elegance.  The irony wasn't lost on me that while thee butterflies fluttered all around me, and the misters saturated the air, and as I waited and chose my moment carefully....  I always saw this image in black and white.  

Go figure.
