Hi all,
I this is record shot of blue morpho and this is for sabine(wishnugaruda) who wanted to see open winged shot of this butterfly!This was shot last weekend in a butterfly park "Leidschendam".

This belongs to The subfamily Morphinae (family Nymphalidae)the wings is an intense, iridescent blue whereas the underside is brown with several eyespots. It is a tropical butterfly of Central and South America. It has a wing span of 6 inches (15 centimeters). The adult drinks juice from rotten fruit with its long proboscis, which is like a sucking tube. The adult males have brighter colors than the females.
The larva eat plants at night. The larva is red-brown in color with bright patches of lime-green or yellow. The larvae are also highly cannibalistic.
