The Glasswinged butterfly (Greta oto) wings are translucent and span 5.6 to 6.1 cm (2.2 to 2.4 in). Its Spanish name is "espejitos", which means "little mirrors".

This was photographed in Mexico at the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve, where WLT is helping to fund the purchase of threatened habitat, in order to protect the biodiversity of the area.

World Land Trust - Rainforest Conservation in Action
Introduction
The World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation organisation that takes direct action to save rainforest and other wildlife habitats. So far WLT and its overseas project partners have been instrumental in the purchase and protection of over 500,000 acres.

"The money that is given to the World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on the wild world than almost anything I can think of."
Sir David Attenborough

Mission:
  • To protect and sustainably manage natural ecosystems of the world.
  • To develop partnerships with local individuals, communities and organisations
  • To raise awareness, in the UK and elsewhere, of the need for conservation.
Read our full mission statement on the WLT website

Did you know that a donation is made to save threatened tropical forest through the World Land Trust for every wedding photographed? So far BK Photography has donated and has saved 13,000 square metres of critically threatened forest. Many thanks to Bartocz for his support and congratulations to everyone who tied the knot in 2013.
