Artist's Description

(Nikon D5200; lens: AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm)

Close-up of an emerald butterfly on green leaves. The iridescent green sheen of the bands of this butterfly is not produced by pigments, but is structural coloration produced by the microstructure of the wing scales. They refract the light and give rise to blue and yellow visible reflections, producing the perception of green colour when additively mixed. This butterfly is a native of South-East Asian, notably Myanmar and Borneo.
