THIS IS A BUTTERFLY! (Scanning Electron Microscope) - Part 2 - Smarter Every Day 105
This is one of my favorite timelapses that I’ve ever made. It’s a Morpho butterfly wing that I applied Isopropanol to. The Isopropanol neutralizes the nano-structure photo-mechanism in the wing, turning it the color of the wing itself. When the alcohol dries, it turns back into its irradiant blue color. SOOO awesome!
