This pic was so unusual and beautiful I thought it worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Yes, it is a wonder of nature and very well captured. Suitable DOF - you can see some of the habitat. Great

Very unusual Bynx, well captured, I guess the wings are transparent, don't think I've ever seen that live. ... Jack.

Wow, what a beautiful creature. I love the winged insects as subjects the most!

Great job and lucky catch!

Sorry if I mislead you. I did not take this picture. This butterfly is from south america. I only posted it here since I have never seen one like it before with transparent wings. Im sure some of you have never seen it and it is for you that I posted it.

Wow that is truly one amazing and unique insect. I would love the opportunity to photograph one (or a 100 or so) Thanks for sharing!
