Nature, colour and power

Here's a nice picture of a transparent butterfly.A butterfly with transparent wings is rare and beautiful. As delicate as finely blown glass, the presence of this rare tropical gem is used by rain forest ecologists as an indication of high habitat quality and its demise alerts them of ecological change. Rivaling the refined beauty of a stained glass window, the translucent wings of the Glasswing butterfly shimmer in the sunlight like polished panes of turquoise, orange, green and red.

Looks like Fr Joshtrom through his passionate "secular" goodnight about ecology and the ecological crisis has rubbed something onto me. This pic was sent to me by Fr Koshy and there was a nice statement in the same mail:
All things beautiful do not have to be full of colour to be noticed; in life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
