Glass wings There are so many wonderful insects out there in the world, some we like and some we don’t. Even those we don’t are often beautiful close up. Have you ever seen a glass winged butterfly? You can see through their wings as if they were made of glass, kind of cool when you see them. I was lucky enough to be able to photography some a few years ago. The photo is of two glass winged butterflies.

Thank you, you would see them where you are, unless you go to a butterfly house and they have them there.

@Jessicalynnt Maybe they didn't then, because I'm sure you would remember.

No they aren't in the UK, although the photo was taken on the UK at a butterfly house.
