When a jumping gene "jumps" to different positions within the corn kernel, a color gene is "turned on" or "turned off" depending on whether it lands in a position next to a pigment gene or not. Barbara McClintock's discovery of these jumping genes in corn earned her the Nobel Prize.

Closeup of a Kingfishers wing feathers. It sadly lost its life after flying into a cottage window in mid december, and was brought round to me to take any photos before it was buried in their garden. Here you can see how the colours change with the light . It was photographed outside in morning light. Thanks to Olly for lending me his 90mm Tamron Macro lens.
