This butterfly shadowbox art piece features a stunning Morpho butterfly from South America. There are over 80 different species of blue morpho butterflies and this species has variation on the size of the black margins, with different subspecies. The underlings have ornate brown and orange eyespots that offer camouflage when at rest. These butterflies have been known to feed on overripe fruit and become inebriated, with a wobbly, erratic flight. Learn more about Blue Moropho butterfly natural history.
