A transparent butterfly from Central America
I believe these are called "glass" butterflies for obvious reasons.
Unusual butterfly wings!

Glasswinged Butterfly (Greta otao) - The most obvious fact relating to the glasswing is that it contains transparent wings, usually with an outline of black or orange -- although the colors can vary. This unique characteristic occurs because the butterfly has no colored scales, which account for the color variations on most butterfly species. It has a wingspan of around 2 inches. The Glasswing butterfly isn't common all over the worl, well-known around Central America. S Goldstein
Venezuelan Poodle Moth

In the latest “insects that look like Pokemon” news, here’s a Venezuelan Poodle Moth. From what I can tell it has spikey golden horns, beautiful false eyelashes and it gets its fur groomed regularly. Seriously though, this thing is crazy looking! It’s not the kind of moth you chase around your bedroom with a bottle of hairspray, screaming 'die you little jerk!' No, this is the kind of moth you chase with a novelty poke-ball because you're stoned and want to make it battle other bugs!
the Venezuelan Poodle Moth... Dr. Karl Shuker, a zoologist, science writer, and cryptozoologist (one who studies animals in order to evaluate the possibility of their existence), investigated the photo that is taking the Web by storm and discovered Dr. Arthur Anker, NUS, and his legitimate collection of 75 photos from Gran Sabana national park in Venezuela.
Venezuelan Poodle Moth. Arthur Anker first spotted the tiny insect with a 1-inch wingspan while walking through Canaimá National Park in Venezuela, and is now asking other zoologists to help identify its genus. A few experts believe the poodle moth is related to the furry muslin moth (Diaphora mendica), which gives scientists hope that there are still fantastical creatures out there we haven't even seen yet.
The Venezuelan Poodle Moth - The photograph above, taken by zoologist Arthur Anker, has been making the rounds online, as the bizarre creature looks straight out of a fantasy world. Possible new species discovered in 2009: Paraphyletic group of Order Insecta, related to butterflies [Lepidoptera]
Venezuelan-poodle-moth. I'm really not a bug person, but how amazing is Nature!
looks inviting !!!

Who needs a tree house when you can have a tree bed?
Outdoor bed! This is wonderful! But, I can't help but feel that I personally...would need some guard rails on each side. Or before I'd know it, I'd be flat on the forest floor!
Hanging bed -- sweet dreams.

“I am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself. But for the rest of my life, I am going to be with me and I don't want to spend my life with someone who is always critical. So I am going to stop being my own critic. It's high time that I accept all the great things about me.” ~C. JoyBell C~
