Blue Morpho Butterfly by EmMelody Blue Morpho Butterfly by EmMelody
Until I did a little research to find the name of this butterfly, a "Blue Morpho", I didn't realise the interior of the wings were a beautiful bright blue! It's a shame it was hiding that from me when I took this photo at a local Butterfly House. Like usual, this photo was taken with a FujiFilm FinePix HS20 EXR :) (Smile)

Please don't use this without my permission... Thanks!

I'm always looking to improve my works, so please leave suggestions or tips on how I could improve! I would really appreciate it! :) (Smile)

Please check out my other photography: emmelody.deviantart.com/galler… :) (Smile)

I saw some of those at a little preserve in York Maine.. they dont look like much sitting but when they open those wings and show that beautiful blue!... I wasnt able to get any shots of them.. they moved too much that day

You're very lucky to see one in their natural habitat! :D They are very beautiful with their wings spread out! I would love to capture a photo of that :aww:

Well it's not really a natural habitat, it's a combination zoo, amusement park in York Maine..they have a butterfly conservatory building and they are located in there.. they were pretty to see.

Beautiful butterly and quite sharp shot.
Well, at least it gives a hint of light blue through the damaged parts.

The injury gives that animal and picture something special and some character though.
And it didn't lose its beauty. :+fav:

How can I imagine such a "butterfly house"?

Thank you very much! Yes, it is individual and definitely has beauty :heart:

This butterfly house was quite hot, humid and was like a greenhouse with translucent windows and was full of plants. There were quite a lot of butterflies in there - if you were lucky, one could have flown and landed on you :aww:

Oh, so you mean there are actual houses for butterflies?
Are they free to come and go or is it a closed structure?

Beautiful! 

When you say you took this photo at a local "butterfly house" ... you don't mean a house made out of ... butterflies?

No, I was joking.

Was it a house where butterflies hang out, and meet other butterflies? Like a sort of butterfly drop in centre?

Outstanding shot, it looks as though it may have had a bit of a runin with a bird. That may be why it was so shy!

Yes, shame he was missing a part of his wing :( Luckily this was in an area where birds couldn't access, unless one managed to sneak in unnoticed :O Thank you very much for the compliment :D
