Artist Statement

 

The Common Morpho has incredible shimmering blue wings that can be seen, it is said, from more than a half mile away (farther, if you're a butterfly). The underside of their wings are less flashy and more brown, but they do have these watchful looking eye spots and markings. You can almost imagine the Morpho flickering some Morse code across its range in Central and South America. If only we could understand what they were saying. (word / l8r)
