Of course I have to believe the expert's opinion.. nevertheless, I find the picture or 'the idea' of the photo beautiful. I recently founded the 'Blue Zone Community Foundation' to bring awareness about environmental and community sustainability to the people here in Costa Rica, and this type of butterflies which are so common in this area, ignited the inspiration for the Foundation's name..., then of course..., the Peninsula de Nicoya is one of the five Blue Zones of the world. What is beautiful to see around here are the mangrove trees housing hundreds of white herons for a 'night' over, they start arriving at the trees around 4:30 p.m., the trees then look like giant flowering cotton trees, all white, but the real spectacle is to watch the white herons take off like a flying white cloud every morning...

morpho males are territorial and chase each other on sight. that tree is clustered purely with males. perhaps it is some kind of an expensive art project which would explain not only the picture in itself but also the unusual location. oh, how i would have loved to see a tree decorated with morphos for a day. for all people concerned with protection of the species: morphos are farmed today which makes them not only more affordable but also helps protecting the rainforest because the native people can earn their income without destroying it for raising cattle or field crops. it may be manipulated and artificial but it is a heartstoppingly beautiful picture nonetheless and gives people something to dream of. it is a glimpse of paradise.

After looking at this photo once again I am inclined to think of it as a rather poor photoshop image. But another Pixdaus viewer recently (just yesterday) made a comment on one of my uploads (of a photo I had taken myself) and said it was "the worst photoshop job ever". However, my upload was not photoshopped at all.

The butterflies are Morpho menelaus, native to South America. This photo is definitely a fake (photoshopped) and was NOT photographed in Golden Gate Park. All of the butterflies in the photo are male (more colorful than the females) and have their wings open, this would not occur in nature. Normally these butterflies (M. menelaus) will immediately close their wings when they light. Morpho menelaus is also a solitary species, that never congregates together, and is found flying high above the ground in the rain-forest canopy.

These are Morpho butterflies native to South America. The photographer says he photographed this in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. No such butterflies around here. It's definately fake.

WOW I have never seen so many in one place, it is beautiful. If only this world could last longer so I can see such beauty in my older days. Or hopefully Jesus may come in my time, I hope to see the purer ones in heaven

Is it real? or a prepared photo?
