Blue Morpho

Probably the best known butterfly of the rainforest. It’s beautiful metallic blue coloration and erratic flight most likely serve as mechanisms against predators, making it hard to pursue. It is frequently seen along forest trails, in coffee or banana plantations, and near small streams in lowland and middle elevations. See Lodge information and prices.
