A vibrant butterfly rests against a blank backdrop. Its delicate wings, adorned with a soft yet striking combination of autumnal hues—golds, fiery oranges, and deep reds—create a warm and inviting presence. The patterns in stark black accentuate the colors and the butterfly’s graceful form, emphasizing the visual impact of color over intricate detail.
