February 14, 2019 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
“Nature always wears the color of the spirit.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ever wonder how butterflies are so iridescent and colorful? Or why they have so many different patterns and variations? This program will explore multiple aspects of the diversity of color and pattern in butterflies. After a brief introduction covering the basic biology of butterflies, participants will look at specimens in greater depth with microscopes. Given that the many of the bright colors of butterflies are signals for other butterflies, the final phase of the program will explore the structure and performance of their eyes. Register Now
