This butterfly with transparent wings has a Spanish name, “espejitos,” which means “little mirrors.” If it wasn’t for the opaque outline around the wings, the average observer might not see one perched on a leaf or flower.
Adult glasswing butterflies will often migrate great distances, and males of the species are known to lek, or gather in large groups for competitive mating displays.
