Great discussion on insect and plant color

Post by BugEZ »

Here is an extremely interesting dissertation on the physics of insect and plant colors.

The illustrations are spectacular. In particular the butterfly scale structure.

And I shall never look at a shiny metallic insect cuticle quite the same.
