Found a dead butterfly on the road, so I picked it up, and have been saving it for a good photo.

Thought of titleing it "Fallen Angel" but that's pushing it all little on the silly side...isn't it? :)

The dark and somber tones really go well with the fact the butterfly is dead. It's very interesting how the little specks of color in the soil echo the colors in the butterfly's wings. Nicely done!

Dark, but in a good way. Really lets the reds, blues and oranges pop out.

It would be much prettier sitting on a branch or something.
