Exceptional Luiz! TFS!
Stanley, I am sure you have already seen some Morphos in your trips. Since my childhhod I am fascinated by these big blue butterflies. And now, at 67, as I am getting some photos of them and consequently being able to give an idea of their beauty to people who had never seen them it is a wonderful sensation for me.

That's a fantastic picture you've taken of him my friend. Many thanks for showing him to us.
