Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos of butterflies in this Photo Contest with chances to win a Lowepro Photo Classic BP 300 AW and more!

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Loreal Prystaj for her collaboration as a guest judge. Loreal is a visual artist based in New York City. Her work often times exposes the relationship between time and space, with a juxtaposition of the human form and its environment. She expresses ideas through using photography as her base medium and expands ideas through video, installation, performance, and interactive pieces. Often times nature or architecture is implemented in her work, and she uses symbolism in order to find the animate in the inanimate and to break the animate down to its essential components.
