Frozen in Flight #2 (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original, 42 image focus blend
The second exploratory session with the frozen butterflies built on the first; the freezing techniques I'd learned with the frozen flowers wasn't perfect for working with the butterflies, so I tried a different approach this time - placing the subjects in water, and the placing a sheet of thin ice over them, which ensured the butterflies didn't rise to the surface. This worked well, until I came across this example, with a large air pocket formed below the ice...not bad, but unexpected.

After photographing the whole block, I spent some time working on details, fascinated by the detail on the wings, and the small air bubbled formed in the ice around them.
