Colour changing magic ! ✨

Depending on the angle you view an emerald swallowtail you’ll see different colours. Their green colouration is not produced by pigments but by structural colouration. Scales on the wings act like mini prisms that refract blue and yellow light. But to our eyes the colour mixes and voila green!

We’re closed again today, Monday April 16. Please can it be spring soon?!

UPDATE: The Conservatory is closed Saturday April 14 AND Sunday April 15 due to inclement weather. Stay safe out there!
