Blue Morpho Butterfly Month
Enjoy this month-long display of nature at its finest! Marvel at the Blue Morpho as hundreds of these tropical butterflies fill the Day Butterfly Center with their iridescent-blue splendor. If the trend continues, visitors to the Day Butterfly Center will witness the largest display of Blue Morpho Butterflies on the planet during September.
As one of the largest butterflies, with a wingspan of five to eight inches, the Blue Morpho makes a beautiful subject for photos and video. Yet normally throughout the year they maintain the reputation of being notoriously difficult to capture on film. Blue Morpho Month gives you the best opportunity to photograph these butterflies because of the tremendous concentration within the Butterfly Conservatory. Morphos do most of their flying between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. so for the best results, those looking to take photos should consider visiting when the butterflies are resting: before 10 a.m. or after 3 p.m..
