Angel Butterfly

The local name for the amazing White Morpho Butterfly ( Morpho polyphemus polyphemus ), is Angel. It is the perfect name for this beautiful creature that appears out of nowhere gliding through the air with ease and elegance, and has a wingspan of approximately eight inches.

This week, three of them have graced our garden, and a couple more  were spotted in the quiet road behind our neighborhood,  that leads to the golf course in Tangolunda Bay.

They fluttered in our presence for a few seconds,  and then just as magically they disappeared back into the lush jungle leaving us with a joyful  sense of peace and wonderment.
