Butterfly Shadows

 We delight in the beauty of the butterfly,
but rarely admit the changes
it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
~Maya Angelou

I love the shadow the butterfly casts upon the flower.
If you look closely, you can even see the antennae shadow.

Kerri, what a spectacular shadow. I looked at the photo before I read your blog, and didn't notice the shadow at first. Good catch.

Lovely.
Isn't it amazing that butterflies actually have shadows?
I always thing of them as ethereal beings that flit through the air so fast that the shadows can't possibly keep up.... but there, you have proved me wrong.
