This season, Glasswings turned up, here at Boho South, in early March and they’ve been around every day since then. They lack scales on their forewings, giving their wings a shiny and translucent appearance. Its been suggested that this may be an adaptation to help avoid damage during their violent matings. “Males usually discover newly emerged females as soon as they fly, capturing and carrying them to the ground where they mate forcibly.” (Orr & Kitching, 2010). Who would have thought!
