Blue Morpho Butterfly Month At Callaway Gardens
17800 US HWY 27
Pine Mtn, GA 31822
706-663-2281 | 855-421-3035
Enjoy our month-long display of nature at its finest! Marvel as hundreds of tropical Blue Morpho 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.
The Blue Morpho (Morpho peleides) is a spectacular iridescent blue butterfly native to the rainforests of South and Central America. The undersides of the wings are brown with eyespots, but the contrasting upper sides could be considered the most brilliant, vivid blue that nature has to offer. This iridescent color actually results from microscopic scales on the back of their wings reflecting light, giving the brilliant shimmering blue appearance.
