One of four butterflies from a recent visit to the Butterfly Rainforest exhibit at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville. I didn't try to learn the names - there were many varieties present. It is also the home of the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity. From their website: "... the largest collections-based research and education center in the world focused on butterflies and moths. The collections are taxonomically comprehensive and contain more than 10 million specimens, which are widely used by an ever-growing global community of students and scientists. The Center documents past and present patterns of biological diversity and forms the basis for research ranging from climate change and emerging agricultural pests, to evolution and biodiversity conservation." Parts of the laboratory, including a series of pupae to emerging butterflies, are visible through glass from the museum. A video tour can be found at their website: https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/mcguire/

Thanks! I've seen the blue ones at butterfly aviaries before and I don't think I ever got a shot showing the color either. Good thing they have a striking pattern on the underside of their wings too.

They were very popular! The blue was gorgeous when their wings were spread, but I could not catch a good shot. My respect for your photographic abilities grows every time I try to get a good one!! Thanks for the i.d.

Great photo. This is a Common Blue Morpho butterfly. He's a beautiful bright blue on the top side. You can see a sliver of the blue at the bottom.
