Fly Like the Planes

By ducatirider  
To become a butterfly you must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.

I had it in my mind to do this photo in B&W, but when I came to process it I liked the way the golden rays of the sun lit up Lily's hair and the blue background. The problem with blue is that it doesn't render down very well for the internet. The original, from RAW is a lot better quality.
