These 12 butterflies are arranged in an artistic way to show off how the butterfly is the most graceful insect when it flies. The 12 butterflies are different in color and in their species variety. Each species is different in color, pattern and wing shape. Butterflies actually get their colors from two different sources: ordinary (or pigmented) color and structural color. The ordinary color comes from normal chemical pigments that absorb certain wavelengths of light and reflect others. The structural color stems from the specific structure of the butterflies' wings and the reason why the color shifts when you look at the wing at different angles. It happens when light passes through transparent, multilayered surfaces and then reflected back to you.
