Fascinated with animal feathers, scales, and shells that seem to change color when they move? Create your own naturally iridescent insect colors!
Have you noticed that some insects, birds, or fish seem to change color as they move? What you see is the light hitting the surface and ultraviolet rays bouncing back from different angles. If the animal’s covering (scales, shells, or feathers) reflects light at several different angles, they are often iridescent.
Look for pictures of insects that have one main color, but seem to reflect different colors when they move. What are some of your favorite Iridescent Insects? Choose one that appeals to you.
