The Common Morpho


I spent the most time chasing these frustrating little guys around the butterfly room.

The underside of their wings has a beautiful pattern in browns and golds, but the top is this brilliant blue. Unfortunately as soon as they touched down they tended to close their wings and keep them closed, as in the top photo where several of them are hanging out on a piece of pineapple.

I really wanted a picture of the blue wings, and while none of these are great, I did, quite literally, sweat for them.
