The butterfly continued to stay in one place but willingly went on to someone's finger when they tried to pick it up. Again it just stayed there.
They continued to notice the unique coloring.... and they had an idea........
What about adding light?
They used a blue laser light and the wings shone beautifully...
Details showed up and they noticed even more about the butterfly than they had in regular light.
The colors were amazing....
In this picture they used a white LED light to shine on the wings.... the colors really stand out.
We found out that there are reflectors... scales that are transparent and act as mirrors to reflect the light.
There is even some florescent pigment on them which explains why they seem to glow.
and look at that long proboscis all rolled up there... we enjoyed seeing this up close like this.....
SOOOOO, if a blue laser light made it look great......
With the red light, you can see some scars on the wing....
My oldest son visited while the butterfly was recuperating in our house.... and his comment was something to the effect of "You never let us bring those in the house when I was in school." :) Yes, I surprised my family.... and it was good....
I am reminded that if God cared enough to put so many seemingly insignificant details in one very temporary creature... He obviously is a great designer... and has a plan... and I am thankful His plan included saving me.... and all who accept Him as Savior. What a blessing.
