A butterfly enjoying the fruits of her labors, as the flowers she feeds from are pollinated by her peripatetic visits.  I intend this as a symbol of the potential in all of us to be genuinely ourselves.

"The butterfly is a symbol of transcendence -- the ability of the mind to soar. " -- Austine

Butterflies are one of Austine's frequent subjects. Not only is their beauty and symbolism universal, the colors of butterfly wings are "structural" and thus cannot be fully captured in any other medium, including photographs.
