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.

Another fine selection to entertain us in the depths of the British Winter.

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.
