Blue Morpho Butterfly

By jove
Thanks to all who commented on my recent upload.
This is a Blue Morpho Butterfly taken at Stratford Butterfly Farm in Stratford upon Avon.
We are staying fairly local in a caravan enjoying the different seasons we are having at the moment, lol.
To be honest it's very sunny just now.
Anyway I hope you like my Butterfly.
Comments are very welcome.

You have done well to catch him with his wings open. They are so fast!

What a brilliant capture, as Marian has already said, it's rare to get the chance of an upper wing shot.
