Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

I talked with a friend and we had come to the same idea, but we never seen any campanotus with that color. That was what blowed our minds.

I can't see the color with her wings being there and all. If she sheds her wings it will be easier to see.

I'll later on take more photos from behind and after without the wings when they finally fall. The only reason I'm not doing it now it's because she've been really stressed during the time I caughted her. So I'll be leaving her in the dark in the test tube setup.
