I raise monarch butterflies just so I can photograph the chrysalis (well, yeah, the environment, too). Most agree that the monarch is the most beautiful. There is some chemical in the milkweed (host plant for these beauties) that makes the gold flecks. I did not alter this. It is just starting to transform and this one hatched 18 hours after this shot was taken. I can tell you that most people go nuts over this photograph. This is available is a 5 x 7 for $7. I will also include 4 wallet size photos.
