Closeup of the wing of a butterfly, Protboe calidonia, showing its arrangement of wing scales. The scales are attached to the wing membrane by short stalks, which fit into tubular sockets. The colour of the wing is determined by the pigmentation of the scales and also by diffraction of light off the surface of each scale.

Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly photographed by Denis Rouvre. Lately i've been a big fan of Kendrick's latest album, "To Pimp a Butterfly". This album explores many culture related themes through the use of metaphors and language. The album also features notable Jazz artists, such as saxophonists Kamasi Washington and Terrace Martin, who bring a prominent jazz influence throughout the album.
"The struggle to break out of the cocoon develops the butterfly so it can fly. Without that adversity, the butterfly would never have the strength to achieve its destiny". So, too, with our own adversity.
British Robins ... can't beat them! Wherever I've lived there has always been a robin who has totally befriended me - and I've always named them "Tim" in honour of one of my fave authors Derek Tangye, who wrote about one in his books ♥ It's unusual to see two sitting together like this; despite their endearing image they are very aggressive little birds, and will fight to the death over their territory.
