Blue Morpho Butterfly Coloring Page

The blue morpho is among the largest butterflies in the world, with wings spanning from 5 to 8 inches. Their vivid,
iridescent blue coloring is a result of the microscopic scales on the backs of their wings, which reflect light. The
underside of the blue morpho’s wings is a dull brown color with many eyespots, providing camouflage against predators
when its wings are closed. Blue morphos live in the tropical forests of Latin America from Mexico to Colombia. 


As forests disappear, countless species are threatened with extinction.
