I Just Can't Believe This Is a Real Photo—or a Real Animal

This is not a Photoshop. Or a 3D rendering. It's a photo of a Glasswinged butterly, "a member of the subfamily Danainae, tribe Ithomiini, subtribe Godyridina." It sounds like a fantastic beast, but it's real. See the other images.

They live in Central America, where they are called "espejitos" (little mirrors) and they feed on nectar, love and good intentions. [Ark in Space and Wikipedia}
