Blue is one the rarest colors made as a pigment. Most animals can't produce blue pigments. How it's possible that the Morpho butterfly's wings appear to be blue, despite their containing no blue pigment at all? The secret: Each of the wing's scales is a “huge” cell that can bend and reflect light. Blue land animals are rare; there are no blue land mammals and very few blue birds. Blue is in fact so rare in nature.
