The translucent wings of the Glasswing Butterfly shimmer in the sunlight like polished panes of turquoise, orange, green, & red.
Nature can be much more surprising beautiful than photoshopped things we know. A butterfly with transparent wings is rare, real beautiful.

The Greta Oto commonly called as the Glasswing Butterfly comes from Central America, and is found from Mexico to Panama. The tissues of its wings look like glass thus giving it the transparent wings. This is a natural mechanism of this butterfly. The opaque borders of its wings are dark brown sometimes tinted with red or orange, and its body is dark in color.
