SPECIES  Morpho achilles Male & Female


FRAME   21.5x29.5xD3cm Made from recycled products. 

DESCRIPTION  Stunning metallic blue bands on the viso wings of this species. It is the female that is uncommon to see framed. The Blue Morpho butterfly has 6-10 layers of branches that make up tree like structures, resulting in multilayer that selectively reflects blue. The color of the Blue Morpho butterfly stays in the blue regardless of the viewing angle. The pigment beneath each of these scale absorbs the unnecessary green to red light, which reduces the background reflection and enhances the blue structural color. The verso side is in stark contrast with dull brown colouring with various sized eyespots ( ocelli )  from the Latin oculus (eye)


Set in white matt label front.  Strictly limited item.
