Peacock Swallowtail from Indonesia -- Papilio blumei
Native to Indonesia, it is found only on the island of Sulawesi. This wonderful butterfly uses structural color within its wing scales to create a brilliant blue coloration, with the tails and the main wing reflecting back different wavelengths of blue.
The wing scales reflect back the blue wavelengths of light, but do not contain their own pigment.
