Glasswinged butterfly (Greta Oto) closeup in butterfly park "Vlinders aan de Vliet", Netherlands.
A similar photo to the one shared before, and it really is the same butterfly. Yet in the meantime it flew off and landed on a different spot, in a similar position. This time I was able to get much closer, capturing more detail of its fabulous wings. You can clearly see how the light of the flash is reflected into a rainbow-like pattern. This effect is much more stunning when you actually see it fly, it's almost like a fairytale experience.
''Greta oto'' is a brush-footed butterfly, and is a member of the subfamily Danainae, tribe Ithomiini, subtribe Godyridina.
''G. oto'' adults also exhibit a number of interesting behaviors, such as long migrations and lekking among males.
