Theme Thursday - Butterfly

"Poor Butterfly" is a song title but I am not sure of its origins. I Googled the wings, altered a black and white photo from Flickr-free-to-use images and used my own background which came from tweaking Photoshop Elements in an exercise where I had no idea what I was doing or where I was going and one that I will probably never be able to repeat!!
