BUTTERFLY







Photos by Sonia A. Mascaro

................

Despite its lively color, this butterfly you see is dead. I found its lifeless body at the floor of my porch and I decided to photograph this beautiful insect front and back.

Beautiful butterfly. I tried to get good shots of a dead butterfly once but it just looked.. well.. dead. Live ones never sit still for me.

Simply wonderful !!! Being not a lover of "everything flying" (except planes), these photo are absolutely wonderful. I especially love those vivid colurs and details.

I guess butterflies don't live long. This gave you a unique chance to capture it from both sides. You would not imagine that the two sides look so different!

Oops, I thought there were 2 of them...
What an excellent idea, Sonia - after his short life, he's preserved in your stunning photos for eternity!

Incluso en estos casos la muerte es bella, o mejor dicho, la vida, la naturaleza es tan grandiosa que aun despojada de ella se revela con la belleza que nos muestran tus fotos. Felicidades y Saludos.
