Blue Morpho on Orange Leaves

I believe this is called a Blue Morpho Butterfly, and I think it is so beautiful, not only in the way it looks, but also because of it’s size and the way it flutters around in the air.  I didn’t have the easiest time photographing this butterfly because it was always on the move.  Not only was I lucky when it finally landed and spread opened its wings, but it happened to land on this colorful plant with orange leaves that really show the rich color of the blue wings.
