Day 086 - 11/29/2008 Blue Morpho
I managed to capture many amazing shots of the beautiful butterflies. This however, a Blue Morpho, sitting still with its wings open is an extremely rare sight. Either it had just emerged and was waiting for its wings to dry or it was near the end of its life; sadly I suspect the latter due to the tattered spots on the wings.
If you're Tucson between now and March 31, 2009, please consider a visit to this beautiful and educational exhibit and the gardens in general - you won't be disappointed!
