Description

Another one of my old slides cleaned up in PS8. This was a setup deal when my son was young. I bought the butterfly (real wings and fake body for a wedding shoot I was doing and decided to get some extra mileage at home) and rolled up a bit of tape (no two-sided tape back in those days) to stick it to his nose. He did the acting :0)
