A Thamyris Morpho (Morpho portis thamyris) housed in a 10 x 10” frame.

 

This butterfly has a lovely pale blue shimmer, it is much smaller than most Morpho species but what it lacks in size it makes up for in it's colourful shine! Thamyris was a singer in Greek mythology who was so proud of his skill that he boasted he could outsing the Muses. His story is told in the Iliad.

 

This butterfly is found in South America and loves nothing more than sucking up the juices of rotting fruit on the floors of tropical rainforests.
