Four Wings and A Prayer

A few weeks ago, I watched Four Wings and a Prayer, a beautiful film about the migration of the Monarch Butterfly. Based on a book by Sue Halpern, this film depicts the amazing journey these butterflies undertake, from Canada to Mexico. The cinematography is quiet yet breathtaking, and tells a moving story about life and sacrifice.

With their bright orange wings, spotted and striped, Monarchs are one of the most universally recognized butterflies. Here are a few interpretations by the Female Photographers of Etsy (FPOE):
