12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Diamond in the Rough

Sometimes beauty may be found in the most unlikely of places. Crater of Diamonds State Park is a place where beauty may sometimes be found in the small diamonds and other precious gems buried in the ground but sometimes in our search for wealth or treasures we often miss the beauty around us everyday. This butterfly was one of those beautiful things that wasn't looked for, but nonetheless, was worth admiring.
