A Butterfly's Wings
A patch of scales. Magnification: Approx. ×50
Scales close up. Magnification: Approx. ×200
A single scale. Magnification: ×1000
Microstructure of a scale. Magnification: ×5000
Last night I somehow ran into
Wikipedia's Butterfly page
and decided to stay on and scroll down in purist of pretty butterfly pictures and ended up finding these. Aren't they just breath-taking?
And this world and everything in it just evolved. Sorry, you can't convince me of that.
(P.S. You REALLY want to click on these and see them up close.)
I Didn't Know That
