Transformation: When A Butterfly Becomes One

Butterfly One Summer

When we think of  Transformation, the image of a butterfly comes first to mind at least for most people. Yours truly is certainly not an exception.

But I made an exception for this particular moment because the site of this branch of leaves covered by  spiderwebs is simply difficult to resist. It has indeed a ‘wow’ factor and therefore must be photographed and shared.
