No words this time, just images. The following are actual photographs, taken of real butterfly wings at nearly 200x magnification. The process is almost as tedious as it would be if I explained it here, and yes, I have manipulated these images out of camera. What I haven't done is add a single thing, brush in the tiniest of designs, draw a single line, or change an ounce of color. I have let the natural design of the scales on these wings serve as the blueprint for this art, following the symmetry and flow of their design until I arrive at something I like. To my knowledge, I am the only person in the world of photography to have done this. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did creating them. The natural world, from the largest of its species to the smallest details of its most minute creatures, is a wondrous thing.
