Morpho Didius on Graphite (11×14)
Because of the unique nature of their structural coloration, Morpho butterflies are remarkably colorfast. Many specimens in museum collections that are well over 100 years old still retain their original brilliance.
They are particularly striking when illuminated by spot or directional lights and larger pieces can be easily used as the featured focal point of any room.
The Morpho didius is one of the largest of its family with a wingspan of up to 6″.
