Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine.  — Jeffrey Glassberg

Congratulations to Vinod Kumar from College Station, Texas, whose photo of a sulphur butterfly was the top-rate image in this week's It's A Snap! photo contest.

Originally from India, Vinod, a post-doctoral researcher at Texas A&M University, said “I just needed a break from science research, so I took my daughter and wife to the zoo.”

The Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, Texas, is about 200 miles from Houston. “It’s different than other zoos, said Kumar. It's in a natural setting and everything is not caged, they also have a butterfly garden.”

The self-professed animal and nature lover said taking pictures is his hobby. He snapped the shot with a Sony A100 DSLR.
