Glasswing butterfly

Greta oto


Another blurry shot but just to show the glasswing butterfly, which can also be found in the National Park of Arenal Volcano. If is not G. oto, it could be a related species.

Dying to see one alive...don't think they live near me though. Thanks for sharing the snap.

Yes, I am very happy to have seen them around while hiking. But they are very skittish and they fly away in the moment you approach them :-)

Great find Marta! I just found my first one last December, they are amazing.
