Your Art Class and the September Blue Morpho


The butterfly of the month for September is the big Blue Morpho from the rain forests of Central and South America. The big butterfly measure 5” to 8” and the male has bright florescent blue wings that react with the light and seem to shine.  When closed the wings are brown camouflaged with spots.  The female is brown and her eggs can change color for protection. The Blue Morphos have a defensive spray like a skunk to discourage predators. The caterpillar can also spray. They drink juice, sap, and decayed matter rather than nectar. September birthdays enjoy the qualities of the Blue Morpho: beautiful, unique, and resourceful.
