"This animation was inspired by a group of yellow butterflies I saw in Iguazú falls in Brazil. They chased each other throughout the falls and created a wonderful flickering like an abstract film. The way the Orange-Barred Sulphur animates here is not exactly like how it flies in real life, but gives the essence of the flickering effect it has on the eye as it flies."
