today's picture is brought to you courtesy of the blue Morpho butterfly carcass that i purchased in Peru. it's one of the most beautiful things i own, and is accordingly one of my favorite possessions. i only hesitate to photograph it because it's difficult to do the butterfly justice. this butterfly is graceful and dramatic at the same time, like a ballet; and it's hard to capture movement and grace in a still photo. (also, the butterfly, being 100% dead, is as movement-free as they come.) anyways, the darkened background is the only adjustment i used... those glorious colors are 100% genuine. :)
