In the past, I would have discarded this image. It did not turn out as I had intended, the shutter speed was too slow to capture the butterflies in detail. It was a mistake. Or was it?
The slower shutter speed, 1/40 second, does communicate the movement of the butterflies. the photo is more expressive of the near constant motion of these blurs of color. Not a mistake after all. I can even pretend that this was just what I hoped would occur.
Some art is just a happy accident, being in the right place to see. And inviting others to see.
