Glasswinged butterfly (Greta oto) feeding at the North Somerset Butterfly House, Congresbury. Thanks to Pete the "bug man" for his insight and enthusiasm last Sunday.

I used a macro twin flash for this shot which has picked out the texture of the clear scale-free sections of the wings.

Love those beautiful irridescent colours reflected in its wings, a very fine shot of this fragile looking butterfly
