7. Mating clearwing butterflies (Cithaerias sp.).
Transparency in the clear- or glasswings is thought to confuse would-be predators. A paper in Nature Communications from 2015 https://www.nature.com​/articles/ncomms7909 (external link)
illustrates the novel way in which random nano-sculpturing of the scales allows for the passage of light with little reflectance over essentially all viewing angles, a pretty remarkable feat.

That katydid sure is well camouflaged.

QUOTED IMAGE

So the red area where the wings overlap somehow cancels the transparency? A bit like polarising filters? Or are they just a bit red at that end of the wing?

I see, an effective decoy to attract predators to that end and protect their bodies.
