Blue Morpho

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Blue Morpho
Blue Morpho
Winner
Like the peacock, the iridescent blue on the backs of the wings of this beautiful butterfly is not caused by pigment but rather by microscopic scales which reflect light. I filled in the black around the leaves but the butterfly itself is untouched. I photographed this magnificent specimen at the Henry Doorly Zoo.

This is gorgeous, Nikki! I have never seen one of these up close and personal...striking, iridescent colors. The leaves almost look as if they are made from velvet, gorgeous lighting really showcasing this beauty!

We didn't go to the zoo that day--just to the gardens. I took this on a trip to the butterfly pavilion with my husband. Thanks, though.

My absolute FAVORITE butterfly in the world Nikki! You are on a major roll and I am sooooo proud and happy for you! This is an exsquisite capture and very cool you let others know about the reasoning behind their color! :) Great to darken the bg making the blue POP even more beautiful than it already is! ALL the very best as I do predict WINNERS here! Congratulations dear one!

Thank you so much, everyone, for your support and congratulations. This was a lucky capture, I must say, as butterflies usually close their wings when they are resting. It was great to catch one with the wings spread to show off the magnificent iridescence of the inner wings. I'm pretty crazy about this myself :) Congratulations to all the other finalists and winners. There are so many really amazing images out there!

I missed this one last summer, Nikki--I think it was when I was on vacation and had no Internet. Wow, just beautiful! A big belated congratulations for the 2nd place win; so deserving!
