19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

Because I have been taking gigapixel images of butterflies that I set together from tens of thousands of single photos through the microscope I wanted to know how a butterfly would see me. So, I build a camera the "Butterfly´s Eye Cam" that has no lens but 35.000 drinking straws that simulate a naive view of a butterfly.
