One of my favorite pictures I have a close up of a blade of grass.
If the photographer was looking for heiroglyphs he would see them. You would have sift through thousands of Butterflies to find anything resembling letters

Exactly.... that is weird, since we know for a fact that the English language derived from other languages.
Why wouldn't it be hieroglyphics, greek or runes?
The rich, shimmering colors of some butterfly wings are produced not by pigments, but by a special geometric formation of cells, a new study suggests.
Researchers used an X-ray scattering technique to image the wings from two groups of butterflies – the lycaenid and papilionid families – in 3-D.
They found the wings contain tiny structures called gyroids that diffract sunlight like a crystal.
