Sinister Glee

I admit to feeling a sinister glee in revealing the ugliness of certain critters. Take the beloved butterfly, for instance. The mere mention of this fluttering insect brings to mind sunny days, beautiful colors, childhood innocence, and splats on your windshield.

Ah, but here is what they look like up close. Take a gander at the speckled wood butterfly. Straight from a horror film, my friends. What's with the fuzzy eyeballs? Anyone disenchanted yet?

Thanks for the photo, Brian.
