Reflection is inspired by the Blue Morpho butterfly. I think of them often as I saw them fluttering around the Butterfly Conservatory in El Castillo, Costa Rica. Tiny scales that reflect light create the butterfly’s vivid blue color on the dorsal side while the ventral side consists of muted colors. These butterflies sit with their wings closed and are perfectly camouflaged by their ventral wing pattern hiding the beauty within.
