Last week I confronted my fear of butterflies head on. I went into an enclosed butterfly garden. I felt like I was in a scene from Alfred Hitchock's The Birds. Though I forgot to put on a hat, I will say that I hid behind my camera most of the time. To me, butterflies are both horrifying and beautiful. This day I think I captured a little bit of their beauty. (And perhaps a tad bit of their horror.)
