The Blue Morpho Butterfly is the most recognizable butterfly in the whole of Costa Rica. But did you know these butterflies aren’t actually blue? The color appears the way it is because of the deep, reflective scales on the wings. These scales are very similar to diamonds and are strategically placed so that the light reflects through them and a brilliant blue color gets created.
