One moment...

Uploaded: June 05, 2005


This is a photograph I snapped last year at the Butterfly show. They released a bunch of butterflies, and this one landed on the hand of a girl standing next to me. She stood still long enough for me to get this one shot, then the butterfly flew away. It reminds me of the power we have over something so tiny- the power to set it free or the power to crush it.
