Glass Winged Butterflies

A butterfly with translucent wings is both rare and beautiful.  As delicate as finely blown glass.

I stood, transixed looking in wonderment at the sight before me, occasionally looking through their wings to make sure that my eyes were not deceiving me, could it be that something so precious is sharing the same air as me?! And with that thought the glass winged butterfly flew off to another leaf.  Maybe it didn’t appreciate my camera lens interupting its lunch!

I moved around the area and saw many other butterflies however my mind kept being drawn back to the glass winged beauties, my eyes searching for a photo opportunity that would be original to any other that I had seen.  As if on queue I saw three together balanced on a plant as if having a girly gossip! There irt was, the opportunity I had been waiting for …. 🙂
