This digital art started with a closeup photograph of the Erato Butterfly.
These longwing butterflies are of the species of Heliconius and are like flying flowers. They more float around than flutter like many other butterflies. What I like is they're not twitchy when a photographer comes around. Their slow, lazy, fluttering flight is designed to show off their bright colors, signaling to predators that they are bad-tasting and should be avoided. I, however, watched a bird swoop down and grab one, so maybe all the predators didn't get the memo....
