Caption: Adult female Blue Morpho Butterfly (Morpho amathonte). The female is partially blue with dark margins on the upper surface of the wings and dark tones on the under surface. Females are not seen in flight as often as males but do exhibit a similar vision to an observer, this butterfly flickers between bright blue flashes and stealthy brown as the wings beat very slowly during an exaggerated zig-zag flight pattern.
