Caption

Butterfly scales. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of scales from the wing of a peacock butterfly, Inachis io. These scales have an intricate design and overlap like the tiles on the roof of a building. They allow heat and light to enter, and also help to prevent warmth from escaping from the butterfly. They may also be highly coloured. Magnification x450 at 6x6cm size.
