Wonderful Wings – Butterflies in Macro

Macro photography unearths the rare beauty and magic of a butterfly’s wing, in this series by Chris Perani. Nature works in extraordinary ways, and butterflies are no exception. The iridescence of their wings is made possible through photonics crystals, which are optical nanostructures that cause the coloration and reflection that we see in their beautiful wings.  Take a look at the impressive detail in the collection below.
