FRAME 21.5x24.5xD5cm Made from recycled products.
DESCRIPTION Metallic deep blue colouring. Very large morpho with broad wings and pale white spots on the outer rim of the forewings. There are 29 species of Morpho. Their iridescent colouring is a result of the microscopic scales on the wings which reflect light. The underside is a dull brownish colour usually with various eyespots which deter predators when wings are closed and also provide great camouflage when perched on trees or bushes. Set in white matt to highlight this gorgeous specimen.
