Look straight through the Wings of the Butterfly

Newer Older

Explore #3, Jun 23, 2009 - Explore Front Page, thanks my friends Peggy and Carlos for telling me!

... at the Clearwing (Greta oto) .. a butterfly, which fascinates me. His wings are transculent and thus he looks like still more tender. Only the orange frame around the transparent areas let the butterfly seems to be colourful. The range of the wings is up to 6 cm . His home is Mexico and Panama. The most common English name is Glasswing.

Dedicated to my dear contact Lost Runes (Colorful Dreams), who wrote me a beautiful testimonial. Thank you so much Mike! I really appreciate your kindly comments, faves and invitations ... and I love your wonderful nature photos!

View On Black

Durch die Flügel hindurchsehen, das ist möglich bei dem Glasflügler (Greta oto) ein Schmetterling, der mich fasziniert. Er hat transparente Flügel und wirkt dadurch sehr zart. Lediglich die orangene Strukturfärbung lässt ihn bunt erscheinen. Die Flügelspannweite ist bis zu 6 cm. Seine Heimat ist Mexiko und Panama.
