That's correct. That picture is from my visit to the Cleveland Botanical Garden, they have a nice green house with a replica of a Puerto Rico tropical jungle.

It looks like a banded morpho (Morpho achilles), but that is a Central American butterfly. Not expected in Ohio.

Although Iwould expect a little more blue it looks similar to a 'blue morpho'
