For the 35th week of the Nature Photo of the Week challenge, I looked through my photographs and selected this one to go with the theme "Sparkle."
I'm not sure this butterfly truly "sparkles." Yet, when I looked up the definition of the word "sparkle" - there were quite a few synonyms that I thought fit this butterfly as I remember looking at it while Olivia held it:
The colors were iridescent - changing ever so slightly in the slight between different shades of purples and blues.
The stop at the Butterfly House at the Minnesota State Fair was a much-needed break and visual treat. It's always one of the highlights at the fair for us.
