The Glasswinged Butterfly.
The pretty creature, who is a native of Mexico and South America, does not lack the tissues that make up a full wing, but rather the coloured scales that other butterflies have.

Police officers rescued the little pup from an abusive owner. And then one adopted her.
Emily was on the front page of Yahoo! which makes me very happy. Her video about sexism is fantastic and I am so happy she took the time to talk about the topic.
If you haven’t heard from me in the last few days, it’s because I’ve been inundated with interviews and media requests, phone calls and messages, book offers, broadcast television show proposals, TV appearances, tour circuit and lecture series offers. Someone even asked if I would write an endorsement for their children’s nature book. And, don’t get all nutty on me because I haven’t agreed to anything (yet [maybe]).
This has all come as a surprise for a few reasons: one, I had no idea this video would resonate so strongly with not just women, but men, parents, teachers, business people and CEOs and journalists.
Two, I am hugely surprised that everyone is acting as though this is news. My video wasn’t revealing anything ground breaking, previously unspoken, or unknown. The Internet has dealt with its anonymous critics since the beginning, people in the public eye will always be widely scrutinized, and women have had their appearance come before their accomplishments before.
But what I am the most surprised about is that the majority agrees with me on this one: that negative online communities are detrimental, and also that these things can improve and get better for content creators of all kinds. That if enough people speak up in favor of fostering encouraging environments online, it will happen. You see this environment in the comment section of PBS Idea Channel, an educational series known for their delightfully constructive community. You see this in the Nerdfighter community. Why not for other educational channels?
The reception of that video far exceeded any expectations I had, and I take it as an indication that we are all working together towards positive change. Thank you, all of you.
On this day in music history: November 28, 1981 - “Let’s Groove” by Earth, Wind & Fire hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 8 weeks, also peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 on December 19, 1981, and peaking at #3 on the Club Play Chart on December 12, 1981. Written by Maurice White, Wayne Vaughn and Wanda Hutchinson Vaughn, it is the seventh chart topping single for the veteran R&B band led by Maurice White. Following the somewhat muted commercial response to the bands’ previous album “Faces”, White will collaborate with songwriter Wayne Vaughn, a member of The Brothers Johnson’s touring band and his wife Wanda Hutchinson Vaughn, the lead singer of The Emotions. Issued as the first single from the band’s eleventh album “Raise!”, the song will restore the band to commercial prominence on both the pop and R&B charts. “Groove” will top the R&B charts longer than any of their previous chart topping singles. Also a huge crossover pop smash, it will peak at #3 on the pop singles chart, holding that position for five weeks behind Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” and Foreigner’s “Waiting For A Girl Like You” which will have a hammerlock on the top two chart positions during the holiday season. It is nominated for a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. Shortly after the original mix’s release, the single will also be issued as an extended dance remix (initially in the US only as a promotional 12” single to club and radio DJ’s) that will also become a big hit on club dance floors. It will be issued commercially in the UK and Canada only before being belatedly issued on CD in 1994 on the Japanese compilation album “Dance Tracks”. “Let’s Groove” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
