Their vivid, iridescent blue coloring is a result of the microscopic scales on the backs of their wings, which reflect light. The underside of the morpho’s wings, on the other hand, is a dull brown color with many eyespots, providing camouflage against predators such as birds and insects when its wings are closed.

A visit to the butterfly farm would be a definite!

<3It is blue-butterfly day here in spring,  And with these sky-flakes down in flurry on flurry  There is more unmixed color on the wing  Than flowers will show for days unless they hurry.    But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:  And now from having ridden out desire  They lie closed over in the wind and cling  Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun And find your shoulder to light on, To bring you luck, happiness and riches Today, tomorrow and beyond.

Beautiful, haunting... love it.
