Looking at butterflies that have recently emerged from their chrysalids is very interesting.

Based on the pattern on the wings and the statement on the Butterfly Wonderland site that "The Blue Morpho chrysalids are pale-green or jade-green and emits a repulsive, ultrasonic sound when touched" I wonder if this is a Blue Morpho with colors yet to emerge. That's an interesting butterfly with bright blue wing tops and a patterned shades of brown underneath.
