Monarch Moment| 5"x7" | oil on hardboard
As kids we would spend lots of time chasing butterflies around trying to catch them; often without much success. And when we did finally catch one, we really didn't really know what to do with it other than stick it in an old mayonnaise jar with the token small twig and some grass in order to create a kids version of a natural habitat. Oh, and of course punch some holes in the lid with a nail.
I captured this one quite some time ago with my camera instead of a net. No mayonnaise jar required.
