Glasswing Butterflies~

These are so cool! You can see right through them!

 Their proper name is Greta Oto. In English they are called "Glasswing Butterflies" and in Spain their name is "espejitos", meaning "little mirrors".

They're found in Mexico and Panama, and Venezuela. There are other species found all over the world, including southern and eastern Africa.

The caterpillars eat toxic plants and the adult males use toxic plants to emit pheromones to attract females.
