Greta oto has many names, the ‘transparent butterfly’ and the ‘glasswinged butterfly’ to name a few. Quite unbelievable and intriguing, but still very cool!

'The Glasswinged butterfly is a beautiful brush-footed butterfly and is a member of the: subfamily Danainae, tribe Ithomiini, subtribe Godyridina. Greta oto adults exhibit a number of interesting behaviours, such as long migrations and lekking (gathering of males for competitive mating displays). The wings are translucent, with a wingspan of 5.6 to 6.1 cm (2.2 to 2.4 in). Its most common English name is glasswinged butterfly, and its Spanish name is “espejitos”, which means “little mirrors.”

The Glasswinged butterfly gets its name because the tissue between the veins of its wings looks like glass, as it lacks the coloured scales found in other butterflies.’ (via 15 Stunning Photos of the Glasswinged Butterfly)
