Many years ago, I was trying to catch one of these butterflies. I saw one flying toward me. I was sure that I was going to be able to capture it. However, just before it got to me, it landed on trunk of a tree. Even though it was only a few feet away from me when it landed, I could not see it again until if flew. I walked over to trunk of tree and looked carefully at all shrubbery around tree, but I could not see it.
God is very good at taking care of Morpho butterfly. Although very easy to see, it is very hard for any predator to catch. God is very good at taking care of us too.

When presenting this to a group, it helps to have a camera flash. When you tell about butterfly flying through a flash of sunlight, have a specimen or picture of butterfly and trigger flash at butterfly. This will help viewer understand how it would be hard for bird to follow it. You can find some camera flashes that can be manually triggered here: Camera World - Wolf Camera - Photo Alley -
