We’re sticking with the flying motif with this mystery photo of a butterfly statue made of blue granite, South Carolina’s state stone. Thousands should have spied this piece in the last month, but where specifically is this and what do you know about it? We’ll forward some City Paper swag to the 5th person who correctly identifies this week’s mystery. To enter (one entry per person), send your guess, name and hometown in an email to: mystery@charlestoncitypaper.com.

LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY , “Another Bird,” turned out to be tougher than we expected. Only seven people correctly guessed in the weekly contest in which we were planning to send swag to the 24th correct guesser. (Shows what we know.) So, we’ll stick some swag into the mail to three of the guessers who knew the photo was a bronze of an eagle at Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park. Congrats!

Every Monday, the City Paper offers a mystery photo taken somewhere in the Lowcountry. We encourage you to guess — and make sure to share your name and the town in which you live. We’ll uncover the mystery the following week and, every now and then, give a prize.

BONUS: If you want to submit a mystery photo taken by you for us to share, send it to our mystery email address. Make sure to put “Submission” in the subject line.

PAST MYSTERIES: While the guessing time on these mysteries is over, you might like seeing some old mystery photos that readers have puzzled over. Enjoy!
