This is one of the largest butterflies in the world and pretty unique too. Its outside wings are a dull brown camouflage.

This is quite a departure from my norm.  But, yes,  it did start with one of my photos.  Because I have so many butterfly photos already, I wanted to experiment to see if could achieve something different and ta-da, here it is!
