Lotsa lovely sorts in the order of butterflies and moths. This is a photo of a blue morpho butterfly taken on a recent visit to the butterfly and insect exhibit in the Omaha Zoo. It was my hope to get a shot of its wings' topside which are a brilliant iridescent blue, but when it lands its wings normally fold to display the underside camouflage design and coloration seen here. It is one of the largest of butterflies with a wing span of four or five inches.
