Rainforest light blue shimmery Morpho Butterfly. A Morpho butterfly may be one of over 80 species mostly found in South America as well as Mexico and Central America. Many Morpho butterflies are colored in metallic shades of blue. These colors are not a result of pigmentation but are a reflection of incident light through the microscopic scales covering the wings.

ABOUT THE BUTTERFLIES AND INSECTS WE USE: All of the real Butterflies and insects used in our framed shadowbox butterfly art have been raised on natural cruelty free tropical farms around the world. These educational farms, aviaries and co-ops provide a real source of income for native people who would otherwise have to sell trees off of their land or raise cattle which are both ecologically disastrous. Tropical insects are important members of these fragile ecosystems. If their natural habitats are allowed to disappear, then they to will vanish forever. Everything possible must be done to preserve them.
Proudly hand making the highest museum quality framed insects one at a time since 1992.
