OMG The Entire Alphabet Can Be Found On Butterfly Wings

I love weird science facts, so today when I read that the entire alphabet, plus the numbers 0-9, can be found on the wings of butterflies, I had a big OMG moment. At first I thought it meant that one butterfly wing contained all this info, and I was about to call BS. But no, apparently the letters and numbers were found on a whole bunch of different butterflies overtime.

Norwegen nature photographer Kjell B. Sandved discovered this fact while working with the Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian Institute. He set out to photograph the entire alphabet as part of a project he called “The Butterfly Alphabet”. The final results are incredible! Take a look below at all the images he was able to capture…
