The Emerald Swallowtail, Papilio palinurus, is one of our most iconic and beautiful butterflies. But, did you know that it actually has no green pigment to it at all? The iridescent green color comes from the microstructure of the scales on the butterflies wings. They refract light and reflect back blue and yellow light that looks green to our eyes. 💚💚💚
