This piece captures a large swirl of monarch butterflies in flight, as they cluster together. The composition features around 40 individual butterflies, capturing a moment in time usually too fast for the human eye to appreciate.

Airborne-Silver-Main-Shot

In this piece, the butterflies are printed in silvery blue ink onto silver card. The card reflects the light, giving a moonlit feel to the piece: the butterflies seem to shimmer as if made from metal.

Airborne - Silver, Close Up

The butterflies are displayed inside a bell jar. Each one is double-sided and individually hand cut, with black wire antennae. They are pierced and suspended on 1mm brass rods within the bell jar.
