Sci fi/Fantasy image by

A fragile butterfly with wings of an immense shade of sapphire blue flutters through the leaves. It lives in a utopia spreading joy, happiness, and hope. The petite creature lands on a sunwashed leaf surrounded by flowers of an intense red and orange. Sensing no danger, it begins to sip the sweet ambrosia of the blossoms. Then, an unnoticed leaf begins to stalk upon her. Slowly the mysterious figure creeps right behind the queen of paradise. The leaf, with a quick jerk, snatches the faerie into it's claws, and sinks it's jaws into the soft, warm skin. She fights endlessly for her life, but it's too late. She's paralyzed, and the grip from the nemesis grows tighter, sucking the life out of the butterfly. The mantis turns to look at you with a menacing stare, then crouches down. With out warning, the villain flies away with a flash, to prey another victim of the paradise.
