As a biochemist, Linden collected specimens of rare and beautiful butterflies from a company called Butterflies and Things. He then used a microscope and some high powered lights to create the visually stunning photographs you saw above. It’s hard to believe that the wings of a butterfly are so incredibly colorful and iridescent on a microscopic level. Share Linden’s incredible pictures with others.
