The Colour Blue in Nature Is Often Not Really Blue, and It’s Blowing Our Minds

Today I learned that the bluest of blue “Morpho” butterflies aren’t actually blue. Yep, nature has been lying to us about the colour blue since forever, according It’s OK To Be Smart:

“Among living things, the color blue is oddly rare. Blue rocks, blue sky, blue water, sure. But blue animals? They are few and far between. And the ones that do make blue? They make it in some very strange and special ways compared to other colors. In this video, we’ll look at some very cool butterflies to help us learn how living things make blue, and why this beautiful hue is so rare in nature.”
