The Museum

The Emperor Butterfly can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"Emperor butterflies are easily recognized because of their lovely, iridescent blue wings. Pigmentation isn't actually what causes the color, but rather the reflections on their wing scales. Since their wings shimmer when moving, noticing them is much easier when they are midflight."

Quote

Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:

"I caught an emperor butterfly! Feeling blue, Your Majesty?"
