Polarisation Vision: Beetles See Circularly Polarised Light.

Warrant, Eric LU (2010) In Current Biology 20(14). p.610-612
Abstract
It has long been known that the iridescent cuticle of many scarab beetles reflects circularly polarised light. It now turns out that scarabs can also see this light, potentially using it as a covert visual signal.
