Nope, so I'm very happy you showed them. You've really come somewhere since your first post, GW. These are really good. When and where?

[/align] I'm sorry guys, I'm having troubles with my R.R. cable account. It keeps cutting in & out.
I should have made it clear these are not my pics. they were forwarded to me via email.
This is the text that came with it. I thought they were interesting and just wanted to share.
Thanks,:bye:

[align=center]Transparent Butterfly[/align] [align=center]It comes from Central America and is found fromMexicotoPanama. It is quite common in its zone, but it not easy to find because of its transparent wings, which is a natural camouflage mechanism.&n bsp;[/align]
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 tr anslucent wings of theGlasswing butterflyshimmer 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.

I do like the Glasswings, although they can be a pain to find.

The butterfly house I visit has a few - I was shocked when I first saw them, as it looked just like they had holes in their wings.
