Still Singing the Blues: Blue Morpho

As mentioned yesterday, while the ventral side of the Blue Morpho is brown with large eyespots, the dorsal side is quite blue --- and here's the proof. They are a challenge to photograph though. The Blue Morpho flitters about constantly and when they do land the wings are open only for a split second. Then the wings close (as in yesterday's photo) and rarely open again. So you have one shot.
