I can see why it's called a Glasswing. nice shot but it looks a bit milky. Was this taken through glass?

Seen a lot of shots taken of these, this is a good one. You've captured good detail and lighting on the wings and the backgrounds very complementary and doesn't look like a captive scenario which adds to the quality overall. The shots been well composed too.

Nice work, well done!

Matt
