Painting: butterflies and Ginkgo leaves

Wonderful paintings of Ginkgo leaves showing the resemblance in shape to butterflies.

Photo taken on Nov. 10, 2011 shows the handmade butterflies created by 81-year-old Gu Houxin with leaves of Ginkgo trees in Suzhou, east China's Jiangsu Province. Gu has so far made over 700 such butterflies by painting coloured patterns on Ginkgo leaves.
