By studying a butterfly from New Guinea Lamprolenis nitida zoologists at the Natural History Museum have discovered how two similarly sized microscopic structures within a single wing scale are responsible for the butterflys changing colour and shimmering wings. The butterfly appears matt brown when lit from above but bright green to red when lit from the front and blue to violet when lit from the back.
