I recently plopped a couple of butterflies on a scanner to illustrate the
differences between two species and was intrigued to find that the ventral
surface of one butterfly which is gray, came out as brown on the scanned
image. Any suggestions on how this can be overcome, if possible ?? Get a
better scanner ?? fix the color with software afterwards ?? don't use a
scanner where color rendition is really important ??
