About Reclining Butterflies
Reclining Butterflies is actually a composite photograph. The branches and background were originally a separate photograph from the butterflies themselves. However, neither photo looked particularly special on its own, so I brought both into Photoshop, merged them, and did some color correction. The final result is far more pleasing that either image was by itself.

Interestingly, both the butterfly photo and the background photo were taken within a few feet and a few minutes of each other. So close! Yet technology had to help this one across the finish line...
