Theme Day - Photo of the Year 2010

I orginally posted this photo in March of 2010 and it became a favorite of mine .  I even have an enlargment of it in my house.  It was taken at the Desert Botanical Garden in the spring butterfly pavilion.  It is a Malachite Butterfly.
Happy New Year Everyone!

I remember this photo, although I do not remember if I remember it from seeing it in your blog or in your house. Either way, with all of the excellent photos that you take, if you chose to hang this one in your house, it must be worthy of being photo of the year.
