We introduce laser interference lithography (LIL) as a tool to fabricate hierarchical photonic nanostructures inspired by blue Morpho butterflies. For that, we utilize the interference pattern in vertical direction in addition to the conventional horizontal one. The vertical interference creates the lamellae by exploiting the back reflection from the substrate. The horizontal interference patterns the ridges of the hierarchical Christmas tree like structure. The artificial Morpho replica produced with this technique feature a brilliant blue iridescence up to an incident angle of 40°.
