This amazing species uses structural color in the wing scale geometry to create a stunning iridescent blue. Adjusting the viewing angle also changes the shade of blue just slightly. The wing scale reflects back these blue wavelengths of light, while absorbing other wavelengths.
Also available in a larger frame as a playful trio. See other posting.
