    Bruce, That is a Blue Morpho. I wish I had a photo of its wings open. It is the most brilliant blue on the inside!

    I would say it is pretty brilliant on the outside too. Thanks again for posting these.

    Cindi,
    i love butterflies they are so calming they bring such a soothing beauty to the open air. There is nothing as cool as going to a butterflyhouse and just sitting and watching them dancing in the sky. what is even better is when they land on you. i feel like it brings me luck. it is like a little stranger is stoping by to pay a little visit and say "hi thanks for being here for me to rest on" ahen flutters off to the next. i sure wish we had a butterfly house in my area of germany
    and Great pictures by the way
    Ciao Valentino
