Paper Kite
Taken with my "old" lens. St. Louis Butterfly House - a part of the Missouri Botanical Garden.
I particularly like the "red" of the flowers glowing through the translucent right wing!!

    Fine capture, Tim. I like the implied motion of the vertical wing while the other stays perfectly still.
