This distinctive framed Blue Morpho butterfly (Morpho menelaus) is an enchanting statement piece that will add a twist to your existing decor. The name “morpho” is thought to originate from the fact that these butterflies appear to change shape as they’re flying. The name “blue morpho” is actually a misnomer because many of the females are not blue at all. The blue color is not a pigment but an iridescence. This group of butterflies have long been a source of fascination to humans with native populations of the Amazon associating this butterfly with a long list of superstitious beliefs, and considered both wish granters or evil spirits.
