This particular image was captured by Hawaii-based photographer Brendan George Ko. Here’s a quick little 3 question interview with him:
What can you tell us about this image?
A few friends and I drove down to Shawnee National Forest for the Great American Eclipse back in 2016. During the eclipse, which took a couple of hours, the hue of sunlight shifted into a dark blue, similar to moonlight. When I returned to this image of the butterfly, I worked the colors to match the feeling and memory of that specific hue just before totality.
What is a recent epiphany you’ve had?
Dreams come from the na’au (gut feeling/intuition) unfiltered by the limits we have in our conscious state.
