Rest your wings.

Well, I'm not the best entomologist around...well I'm not an entomologist at all really...
Which means that I certainly cannot decipher if this winged beast is a Moth or Butterfly.
All I know is that this creature is Amazing.
I took this shot at the Butterfly exhibit in the Museum of Natural History.
It was one of the best museum experiences of my life.
I had a little bit too much fun. Imagine a really hot and damp room packed with all the plants from the tropics that butterflies love.
Release thousands of exotic butterflies in it, then place yourself inside that room. Flying things land on your head. You can reach out your hand in almost any direction and have one willingly land on your hand.

Also, this shot was taken with a Canon SD500 little snap n' shoot camera. This proves that these little cameras have pretty decent macro capabilities, due to their small lenses.

About Me

My photo
In search of myself, I flew across the country from New Jersey to Los Angeles. The universe brought me to the gates of an Ashram on top of a mountain. The mother center of Self Realization Fellowship in Mount Washington, CA. One week later I am employed as a tree pruner and gardener at the mother center. The path to finding oneself is a peculiar one. This is a record of my spiritual observations through nature and life while employed as an Ashram Gardener.
