Butterfly transparent winged butterfliesWe all know butterflies are fragile, so fragile that if you accidentally held your palms over them too tight, you’d kill them. The color in them would literally rub off on your hands if you stroked their wings. The same goes for dragon flies. Well they’re noisy of course but these are transparent. So it’s not too difficult to imagine insects as transparent.
In reality they just don’t have too much color on their wings. The same holds for transparent butterflies. However, even devoid of some of their color, they still are magnificent, as grand as they are meant to be. And the only thing you can thing of when you see them is to say hush, and hold your breath for as long as possible just so that they sit around for a little longer. Transparent butterflies are not a myth but certainly a rarity. And if you ever se one, look at the world through its wings and you’ll find a new meaning in life.
