The Transparent Butterfly “Greta Oto’s” Beauty Will Amaze You

The transparent butterfly, better known as the Glasswinged Butterfly (scientific name Greta oto), is mostly found in Panama, Colombia, and Mexico but has been known to migrate all the way to Florida. Its 5.5 to 6cm wings lack the colored scales found in other species, hence the obvious name. Also unusual in the Greta oto is its practice of lekking, where groups of males gather in large competitive displays to entice females before mating season. Today, we bring you 14 pictures of this gorgeous butterfly and its translucent wings.
