Blue Morpho – Morpho peleides
The Peleides Blue Morpho is an iridescent tropical butterfly found in Mexico, Central America, northern South America, Paraguay, and Trinidad.
The brilliant blue color in the butterfly’s wings is caused by the diffraction of the light from millions of tiny scales on its wings. It uses this to frighten away predators, by flashing its wings rapidly. The wingspan of the Blue Morpho butterfly ranges from 7.5–20 cm (3.0–7.9 in). The entire Blue Morpho Butterfly lifecycle, from egg to adult is only 115 days.
