Caddis by Hubert Duprat: Caddisfly larvae are aquatic, and spin protective silk cases which incorporate bits of material from their surroundings, such as gravel, twigs or small pieces of shell. In this remarkable work, French artist Hubert Duprat (b.1957) has collaborated with caddis larvae by gently placing them in an environment full of gold, pearls and semi-precious stones. The caddis then spin these materials into their casings to produce breathtaking jewel-encrusted covers. #Caddisfly

Moth wing scales. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of scales (blue) on the wings of a common clothes moth (Tineola bisselliella). These delicate powdery scales are formed from tiny stacked modified hairs, or setae, made of chitin, a common substance in insect exoskeletons. The iridescence of the colours of a moth’s wings is produced by the diffraction of light by the microscopic ridges on these scales.
