I was going into my patio when I ended up in front of this guy. I tried taking pictures from every angle but it was too dark for anything usable even with flash. I was trying to think of another way to take a photograph when the light changed and all I saw was his silhouette and that's when I knew how this picture was meant to be. I took it on my toes so the composition and focus was a hit and miss but I managed to get what I wanted in the end.

I like the idea of the silhouette, it would work a bit better if the background was a little cleaner. That would allow the shape of the butterfly to stand out better.

I see the butterfly, but I also see a strange tribal head - cool!
