    I have to say I am a huge fan of evolution and think it has produced some of the most beautiful creations I have ever seen, high among them is the gorgeous metallic blue Morpho butterfly. I have seen morphos in the wild in Costa Rica and they are amazing. At risk of sounding like some weird and maybe slightly cruel taxidermy buff, I also have set of preserved ones glittering over my desk and I never get tired of looking at them (I was really into bugs and nature as a kid and never really outgrew the fascination). At home, I have a bunch of preserved morphos and other butterflies in a case and my kids totally dig checking them out. I am so happy that they can see and appreciate nature's beauty and complexity at home so they will be really excited to go out and experience the wild first-hand when they get older (they are 5 and 3 now and are a bit young to tramp around the rain forests of costa rica or dive on the Great Barrier Reef, etc). Suffice it to say, morphos are a striking and beautiful addition to any room and are both modern/sleek/stylish and wild/natural at the same time.
