Caption: Blue morpho butterfly. Blue morpho butterfly (Morpho rhetenor) on a fern leaf. This butterfly inhabits the moist forests of northern South America. The iridescent blue colour comes from tiny ridged scales on its wings, which scatter the light reflected from them, giving the wings a metallic appearance.
