Did you spot a Blue Morpho Butterfly? It means you’ll have a wish granted. Make a wish!
It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! No, it’s a swarm of Blue Morphos! As they flit above the rainforest treetops, the butterflies’ brilliant blue color can be seen by pilots flying overhead. Now that’s cool!
Open this beautiful card to a very large tropical Blue Morpho butterfly with dazzling iridescent wings, hovering over bright pink flowers.
The shine of their wings is so bright and vivacious that its blue sheen can be seen by pilots flying over head.
Nabokov famously described their appearance as “shimmering light-blue mirrors,” and the butterfly has been a symbol throughout history to represent hope, change, light, endurance and life.
Butterflies are associated with spiritual transformation. The color blue symbolizes a sense of calm and healing.

Just when the caterpillar thought it was all over, it became a butterfly.

There is an iconic scene in “Jurassic Park” where Jeff Goldblum explains chaos theory. “It simply deals with unpredictability in complex systems,” he says. “The shorthand is ‘the butterfly effect.’ A butterfly can flap its wings in Peking, and in Central Park, you get rain instead of sunshine.”
Blue Morphos wings are so large relative to their body that they have a characteristic loopy and bouncy flight pattern, almost as if they just sway willy-nilly along with the wind. Despite their seemingly lackadaisical movement, they are actually quite strong fliers, giving birds and other predators a difficult time trying to snatch them out of the air. The shiny covering on top of the wing is also very hydrophobic and repels water, so Blue Morphos are one of the few butterflies that will fly in the rain.
In contrast, the underside of their wings is brown, visible when the butterflies are at rest and their wings are folded up. The drab color helps them blend in with their surroundings and hide from enemies like birds and large insects. If the butterflies are discovered, they have a second line of defense: two bronze-colored wing spots that look like eyes – perfect for scaring off would-be predators.
Blue Morphos are some of the largest butterflies in the world, with a wingspan reaching up to 8 inches.
