Butterflies and Moths

As a Wildlife-artist and Biologist, Hans J Geuze is very much interested in the formation of colors and patterns on butterfly wings and their role in the butterfly life. The colors are formed by numerous microscopically small scales on the wings and can be seen as small spots at high magnification. This renders the butterfly wing the appearance of a pointillistic painting.

More paintings and information on butterfly colors can be found in Geuze’s recent book “Vlinders”.
