    • Thanks Victor πŸ™‚ I will own up to it not being the best raw image as I was still getting some lens condensation in the Glasshouse, but it had so much potential for an painterly style process! It was really lovely to see a Glasswing on a Lantana flower as they’re often in the foliage or feeding from the set feeding stations. Fascinating little butterflies with those translucent wings!

    • Thanks Colline πŸ™‚ Aren’t they just?! My mum refers to them as ghosts πŸ˜‰ I have discovered that there a number of different butterfly and moth species that have these transparent wings. Some are mimicking bees and wasps and others seem to have them just to merge into the background.
