Clearwing Moth

"I see something you don’t see"

Class: Insects
Order: Butterflies

Family: Nymphalidae
Habitat: Central to South America

The greta clearwing moth has large, see-through wings. They look like small, delicate window panes. But who does it want to look through them and why? Predators, of course! The less it stands out, the easier to escape the sharp end of a bird.
