Glass Wing Butterfly

Glass Wing Butterfly:

Never seen or heard of this amazing glass wing butterfly. This is no photoshopping, it really exists! Found primarily in Central America (Mexico through Panama), the glasswinged butterfly’s name in Spanish is Espejitos which translates as little mirrors. In certain lights, the translucent wing parts have a glossy, almost reflective quality to them that makes their Spanish name effectively accurate.
