Ever since I saw this amazing butterfly hair piece by Alexander McQueen I've been so inspired. I've always admired feather butterflies, but never used them in a project before! I love to translate something that inspires me (fashion, music, art) into something practical for my home.
Did you know that there is a strong link between imaginative play and cognitive ability? Children and adults who surround themselves in creative and engaging living spaces develop more creative mindsets and can even have increased problem solving abilities.Our premium quality white feather and gold glitter 3D wall butterflies can help turn any room, window or mirror into a whimsical wonderland of inspiration, creativity and hope!
Feather Butterflies are perfect for making your projects look colorful and whimsical. These lovely butterfly decorations feature vibrant, feathery wings with painted designs and an attached flexible wire, so you can wrap or tie them around things or stick them in arrangements.
"I didn't have access to a spare butterfly wing, so I made one with a feather and glued it on," she wrote in a TikTok video, showing Nemo with a new white feather wing that moved in time with his others.
Over time, viewers were able to watch as Nemo began to learn to fly with his wing. At this point, Dahlia was under the impression she would be caring for the butterfly for his whole life, but she was mistaken.
"On my way back to my car, I saw a monarch butterfly flying by and I looked up and I smiled, and then as he flapped, I saw a flash of grey so I saw him, he's still out there, he's still flying, living his best life," she said on July 10.
The Feather Popular Safety Razor uses a classic butterfly opening that combines affordability with performance and ease of use. An ideal choice for beginners looking to transition to wet shaving for the first time.
Structural coloration in animals, and a few plants, is the production of colour by microscopically structured surfaces fine enough to interfere with visible light instead of pigments, although some structural coloration occurs in combination with pigments. For example, peacock tail feathers are pigmented brown, but their microscopic structure makes them also reflect blue, turquoise, and green light, and they are often iridescent.
In animals such as on the feathers of birds and the scales of butterflies, interference is created by a range of photonic mechanisms, including diffraction gratings, selective mirrors, photonic crystals, crystal fibres, matrices of nanochannels and proteins that can vary their configuration. Some cuts of meat also show structural coloration due to the exposure of the periodic arrangement of the muscular fibres. Many of these photonic mechanisms correspond to elaborate structures visible by electron microscopy. In the few plants that exploit structural coloration, brilliant colours are produced by structures within cells. The most brilliant blue coloration known in any living tissue is found in the marble berries of Pollia condensata, where a spiral structure of cellulose fibrils produces Bragg's law scattering of light. The bright gloss of buttercups is produced by thin-film reflection by the epidermis supplemented by yellow pigmentation, and strong diffuse scattering by a layer of starch cells immediately beneath.
Structural coloration is responsible for the blues and greens of the feathers of many birds (the bee-eater, kingfisher and roller, for example), as well as many butterfly wings, beetle wing-cases (elytra) and (while rare among flowers) the gloss of buttercup petals. These are often iridescent, as in peacock feathers and nacreous shells such as of pearl oysters (Pteriidae) and Nautilus. This is because the reflected colour depends on the viewing angle, which in turn governs the apparent spacing of the structures responsible. Structural colours can be combined with pigment colours: peacock feathers are pigmented brown with melanin, while buttercup petals have both carotenoid pigments for yellowness and thin films for reflectiveness.
A diffraction grating constructed of layers of chitin and air gives rise to the iridescent colours of various butterfly wing scales as well as to the tail feathers of birds such as the peacock. Hooke and Newton were correct in their claim that the peacock's colours are created by interference, but the structures responsible, being close to the wavelength of light in scale (see micrographs), were smaller than the striated structures they could see with their light microscopes. Another way to produce a diffraction grating is with tree-shaped arrays of chitin, as in the wing scales of some of the brilliantly coloured tropical Morpho butterflies (see drawing). Yet another variant exists in Parotia lawesii, Lawes's parotia, a bird of paradise. The barbules of the feathers of its brightly coloured breast patch are V-shaped, creating thin-film microstructures that strongly reflect two different colours, bright blue-green and orange-yellow. When the bird moves the colour switches sharply between these two colours, rather than drifting iridescently. During courtship, the male bird systematically makes small movements to attract females, so the structures must have evolved through sexual selection.
Photonic crystals can be formed in different ways. In Parides sesostris, the emerald-patched cattleheart butterfly, photonic crystals are formed of arrays of nano-sized holes in the chitin of the wing scales. The holes have a diameter of about 150 nanometres and are about the same distance apart. The holes are arranged regularly in small patches; neighbouring patches contain arrays with differing orientations. The result is that these emerald-patched cattleheart scales reflect green light evenly at different angles instead of being iridescent. In Lamprocyphus augustus, a weevil from Brazil, the chitin exoskeleton is covered in iridescent green oval scales. These contain diamond-based crystal lattices oriented in all directions to give a brilliant green coloration that hardly varies with angle. The scales are effectively divided into pixels about a micrometre wide. Each such pixel is a single crystal and reflects light in a direction different from its neighbours.
Selective mirrors to create interference effects are formed of micron-sized bowl-shaped pits lined with multiple layers of chitin in the wing scales of Papilio palinurus, the emerald swallowtail butterfly. These act as highly selective mirrors for two wavelengths of light. Yellow light is reflected directly from the centres of the pits; blue light is reflected twice by the sides of the pits. The combination appears green, but can be seen as an array of yellow spots surrounded by blue circles under a microscope.
In 2010, the dressmaker Donna Sgro made a dress from Teijin Fibers' Morphotex, an undyed fabric woven from structurally coloured fibres, mimicking the microstructure of Morpho butterfly wing scales. The fibres are composed of 61 flat alternating layers, between 70 and 100 nanometres thick, of two plastics with different refractive indices, nylon and polyester, in a transparent nylon sheath with an oval cross-section. The materials are arranged so that the colour does not vary with angle. The fibres have been produced in red, green, blue, and violet.
REFERRING to Prof. Barnard's letter so titled in NATURE of April 15, which describes the apparent mistake of a butterfly in visiting a peacock's feather as if expecting to ``extract food,'' I think it probable that there are no animals that do not make mistakes at times. I observed an analogous mistake made by a species of Pieridæ-Appias nero-in Sumatra, as I have recorded in ``A Naturalist's Wanderings,''p. 130 :-``In the open paths I netted scarlet Pierida & ... often flying in flocks of over a score, exactly matching in colour the fallen [withered] leaves, which it was amusing to observe how often they mistook for one of their own fellows at rest, and to watch the futile attentions of an amorous male towards such a leaf moving in the wind.''
Remarkably, in the barbules of many bird feathers, melanin is deposited in special organelles, the so-called melanosomes, which cause structural colours when embedded in regular, nanoscale patterns in a matrix of the feather's keratin [8,9]. Durrer  performed extensive transmission electron microscopy (TEM) studies of the feather barbules of numerous bird species and thus found a large variety in the detailed structure of the melanosomes as well as in their spatial arrangements. He interpreted the observed structural colours to be due to the melanosome stacks acting as optical multilayers. 1e1e36bf2d
