An Acraea butterfly, maybe one of the Dancing Acraea's.
thanks Cindy. I loved the colours on this one...
Yes Marta, I saw several like this when I was in Swaziland. Some of the Dancing Acraea's and the Wandering Donkey Acraea's have half transparent wings. As have the Garden Acraea, the Rainforest Acraea and the Clear-wing Acraea. But they are really hard to ID. So many look alike, and they are inclined to deviate from the norm in colour or number & position of spots etc.
Amazing how is only half transparent in the upper wings! :-)
