The images in this Staged Gallery were created purposely for a desired impression.  A good example of this is the image captioned “Butterfly Beach,” which is an image of the eponymous Butterfly Beach in Montecito, California.  But because so few (mostly Monarch) butterflies come to Butterfly Beach anymore, preserved butterfly specimens (bought commercially) were pinned in place and the image was taken. For more such images of Butterfly Beach, please click on “Mediums” above and then on Greeting Cards Beach Theme.
