I love Blue Morphos - they are huge! They fly with absolutely no effort, one flap and I feel they should be able to go from one end of the glasshouse to the other! The colours on their wings (especially the tops) are stunning, a glorious irridescent blue - they rarely open their wings when at rest though, so I've yet to capture that (but it's wonderful to keep trying!).

Taken at Buckfastleigh Butterfly & Otter Centre, Devon.
