Morpho butterfly at Panama bird feeder


This video says about itself:

Extended Visit By A Common Morpho Butterfly On The Panama Fruit Feeder – April 16, 2021

This Common Morpho was attracted to the feeder by fruit from which it can sip nectar and sip it does, and nearly nothing else during its 115 day lifespan. This stunning blue on their dorsal side is not caused by pigment, but rather light refracting scales. Other morphos we have seen on the cam include, Cypris, Stub-tailed and Menelaus.
