Transparent Butterfly

~Transparent Butterfly~
Absolutely gorgeous!
It comes from Central America and is found from Mexico to Panama.
It is quite common in its zone, but it not easy to find because of its transparent wings, which is a natural camouflage mechanism.
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.
All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed:
in life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
Really something isn't it? ~Wishing you Dragonfly Daydreams & Butterfly Kisses~ *hugs* deb
