'glasswinged butterflies'

Glass wing Butterfly, Lives in South America
A butterfly with transparent wings is rare and beautiful.
As delicate as finely blown glass, the presence of this
Rare tropical gem is used by rain forest ecologists as an
Indication of high habitat quality and its demise alerts
Them of ecological change.
Rivaling the refined beauty of a stained glass window,
The translucent wings of the Glasswing butterfly shimmer
In the sunlight like polished panes of turquoise, orange,
Green, and red. (click on Pic to enlarge)

Beautiful,beautiful. God's amazing work. I've always loved Butterflies. When I was little I called them flutterbyes.

Just 10 more days.......Woo Hoo!!!
