Butterfly colors

It is that time of the year -- Spring ! And butterflies are beginning to emerge from their cocoons. I have seen several in the past few days. Hopefully you have also. And, while observing their beauty, have you wondered about their brilliant colors? Well, Jonathan Sarfati has written a very interesting article that explains about "Butterfly brilliance". He says it is due to "dual diffraction gratings which produce two colour signals." What??? (And, yes, I know, colour is not spelled like that in the US but Dr. Sarfati lives in Australia.) Anyway, to read his article and learn about 'dual diffraction gratings', which is obviously something that only God (and not evolution) would do, CLICK HERE.
