Thank you for the kind remarks!

It's always been amazing to me how these "interference" colors created by structure are so intense and fascinating. Phenomenon liike this is one area where us "full spectrum light" photomicrographers can really trump the SEM users of the world. :wink:

(Although to see the actual nanostructures that creates these colors we do need their help! :wink: )
