Brazil Photo

Once or twice a month I will post a picture of something about Brazil. This photo is of an amazingly beautiful type of butterfly called the Blue Morpho butterfly, which is normally found in the tropical jungles like the Amazon. We have seen some here in the forest trail part of the Sao Paulo botanical garden. The top of their wings are blue and they reflect light, so that they appear to be neon blue. They almost do not look real.
