About the Image(s)

As part of our Nature Book Club, every month we visited a different park where we discussed the book for the month. This was taken when our book was Barbara Kingsolver's novel "Flight Behavior" about a colony of butterflies gone off course and their discovery by a local resident. Our group was led by a trained naturalist, who would bring items for show and tell and this month she brought a butterfly chrysalis. When the butterfly first emerges it is very docile, as you can see it poised on my husband Randy's hand.

After cropping, I increased brilliance, exposure, highlights, shadows, saturation, vibrance, and luminescence. I decreased brightness and black point and adjusted sharpness intensity and edges.
