You needed to fully clarify the difference between blue pigments and blue achieved by scattering. One is not more "true" than the other. Pigments simply absorb all colours but blue while scales and such achieve blue by scattering other colours apart from blue. It's the same difference between the sky and the sea. The atmosphere scatters all but blue colours while water actually absorbs all but blue colours. And if you're wondering. Yes! Water is blue! Only very slightly blue so you need lots of it to see the colour.

If we call blue butterfly blue only because the "blue" parts of its body reflect the light we call blue then how does the blue pigment become blue?

Blue footed booby(bird)? From Wikipedia: "The blue color of the blue-footed booby's webbed feet comes from carotenoid pigments obtained from its diet of fresh fish. Carotenoids act as antioxidants and stimulants for the blue-footed booby's immune function, suggesting that carotenoid-pigmentation is an indicator of an individual's immunological state."

Lidia Lidia (4 months ago)
are they kidding?! 😵 they are confusing things that have no connection, pigment and refraction of the light spectrum. if a pigment appears blue, it's because it absorbs all the spectra of color except what we see as blue. It's called REFRACTION! (sorry for my english) bye from Italy
Knut Knusprig (4 months ago)
Am I crazy or did they just claim that colors except for blue are something else than light waves/particles being absorbed and partially reflected to be perceived by color cones in the eye and interpreted by the brain as a "color"? Like.. how is blue a non color and the others are :D Colors are just an illusion that helped our ancestors survive in the wild right - isn't it all just surface structures and materials?
Dhanush Gopal (4 months ago)
Bruh.. the "Blue" Pigment just absorbs the other colors except blue. These animals that are supposedly tricking us are just reflecting blue back. Not much of a difference. Color is just how the living things are perceiving the visible spectrum. How it is being made doesn't make the color fake.
