Artist Statement:

When I was in Florida I visited the Kennedy space center. I was walking around taking photos of rockets when a butterfly flew around me so I quickly spun to see it land on a flower. When I went to look at the photos I took on my trip, I thought with a little Photoshop I can make the butterfly pop out in color and make for a really cool picture. That is my reason for choosing this photo of the butterfly.
