The photos show three examples of Scarab beetles as seen without a polarizer in front of the camera on the left in each pair of photos, and with a left circular polarizer in front of the camera on the right. The first is Plusiotis resplendens, the "gold bug," the second is Plusiotis clypealis, a beetle that appears to be fashioned from silver or stainless steel, and the third is Plusiotis gloriosa, a brilliant green beetle with gold stripes. Beetles of the Scarab family produce circularly polarized light from unpolarized light on reflection from their bodies. For details, see the paper by D. Goldstein, pp. 7944-7950.
