Morpho peleides

Morpho peleides, also known as the Peleides Blue Morpho, Common Morpho, or The Emperor, is an iridescent tropical butterfly found in the Western Hemisphere. The brilliant blue color in the butterfly's wings is caused by the diffraction of the light from millions of tiny scales on its wings.
