Les écailles d'une aile de papillon comète, Argema mittrei, vues au microscope. Ce splendide insecte ressemble à un cerf-volant et habite les forêts humides de Madagascar. Les mâles peuvent atteindre 15 cms d'envergure pour 30 cms de longueur, grâce à une sorte de queue à l'arrière de chaque aile. Crédits : Kevin Mackenzie, University of Aberdeen.

The brighter colours on some butterflies are created thanks to the scattering of light by the scales, such as these jagged examples, which are Papilio ulysees butterfly scales. In fact, each scale has multiple layers which are separated by air, so when light hits them it's reflected many times and the combination of these reflections causes us to see the intense yellows and blues of many butterfly species
