Thank you!!! It was really hard to tell with the details with the picture I had. I think you are right, it is is Morpho deidamia. The individuals I had seen during the day were Giant Blue Morphos. Well, it is so hard to keep up with them in the jungle, they are not that fast but they never stop flying, at least not when you want a picture of them ;)
It was about 5 or 6cm long and I found it in Varzea forest. It is in the rainforest so it is very dark, the canopy is very thick. There are usually a lot of these guys on the ground but not many make it. This picture was taken by the Tahuayo river in Peru. The Tahuayo river is a tributary of the Amazon river.
