Short story alert:

Once upon a time there was a beautiful Blue Morpho butterfly. She was fluttering all through the tropical forest in search of food to eat. She likes to eat rotten fruit. She spotted a nice big rotten dragon fruit. She fluttered straight to it and began drinking the juices. She uses her proboscis to drink the juices of the dragon fruit. When she is finished with that dragon fruit, she flutters to the next one. She flutters in the trees and shrubs closet to the forest floor. That is where she finds most of her rotten fruit to eat. After she has finished her search for food, she then takes a rest so she can hunt for food again. While she is at rest her wings are folded up and she blends right in with the forest so her predators are unable to spot her. It is like magic when her wings are spread out, she is a beautiful blue color and when her wings are folded, she is the brown colors of the forest. THE END!
