The Blue Morpho Butterfly is a beautiful butterfly with brilliant blue wings. It is found in the tropical rain forests of South and Central America. The most striking aspect of the butterfly's appearance is its iridescent blue wings. They seem shiny and metallic. However, they are not actually blue! The blue is not caused by pigmentation; it is actually caused by the way light reflects off of microscopic scales on the backs of the butterfly's wings. The structure of the scales is tetrahedral (pyramid-shaped), and they reflect light. The colors vary depending on the angle from which they are viewed.
