D.D. Bracy was inspired as a child by a surprise close encounter with a large butterfly bush filled with feeding monarch butterflies during a fall migration. As a result, he began a lifelong journey of rearing, close study and bringing to focus the life cycle and migration patterns of butterflies through several artistic mediums.
