Blue Morpho Butterfly (Morpho peleides)

Did you think, that a butterfly spreads its wings to get more energy from the sun, just a guess?

  1. That first one is a beauty. Too bad its wing is damaged.

  14. Beautiful butterfly captures Bob! I believe the butterfly has a temperature regulation problem and therefore needs to ly in the sun to warm up so it can fly again and conduct life...Your backgrounds are always soft and colorful..cheers, Linda

  16. These are lovely, just saw them tucked beneath the one I just commented on. Even with a damaged wing, they continue forward in life, looking for the sunshine and another day to fulfill their quest to brighten our lives~
