Artemis in Flight

Artemis is the Hellenic goddess of forests and hills, childbirth, virginity, fertility and the hunt portrayed here as Monarch Butterflies.
I was fortunate to find a swarm of millions of Monarch Butterflies migrating south in the middle of British Columbia, Canada. I walked into their 40 foot cloud as they glided in flurries like the wind. It seemed to take 5 mins. for them to pass.
Butteflies are extremely delicate and therefore difficult replicate. Originally created as a learning aid for the visually impaired and later emerged as 'Artemis in Flight'
