Butterfly Wing Scale Closeup
Here is a higher magnification of part of a single scale. Red
or yellow in a butterfly wing usually comes from tiny grains of
pigments in the cells. Blue and green are not produced by
pigments, but result from light bouncing off the shapes of the ribs
and cell walls, like a prism.
