I wasn't going to enter this challenge... too much week, too little time... but...

Then, I found a tiny butterfly on our driveway. It was obvious that she wasn't long for this world. *sigh*

She was too beautiful not to record her being... so...

I took her inside on a tiny, 3/4 inch flower... and shot her (with two extension tubes).

Then, I put her on a flowering bush outside with some sugar water.

I hope she made it.

I had no notion that I'd use her for this challenge. I thought "Fill the Frame" would work for her. But, she is SO tiny.

Then, on a lark, I started messing with one of the images and saw that it would be kinda cool for Symmetry. And here we are. :D

One image... repeated four times. This was much more fun than I expected it to be. :D
