Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Outrageous color blows me away, especially the kind seen when oil floats on top of water, releasing iridescent hues of nearly every color imaginable, evanescent and wondrous in appearance, a look, it seems, to be ingrained in insect wings, something never thought to exist as insect wings appear almost totally transparent to the naked eye as long as the background behind them remains light but... when the background fades to black, iridescent wonders issue forth, delighting the viewer in the same way butterflies do on a bright summer day.
