❓Have you known what in common have a compakt disc and jewel beetles?
Microscopic 🔎 texture in the cuticle of jewel beetle wings is the same as a surface of a compact disk.
This texture selectively reflects light in particular directions and make wings 🌈🌿 glossy.
The same effect causes a compact disc to reflect multiple colors.
