This butterfly has several very small, but intricate, eye-spots on it's wings.

The top image shows one of those spots, and the lower image take a look at the white translucent scales at it's center.

That's the stuff Charlie!

I needed that like a cold beer on a hot Summer afternoon (even though it's still Winter down here).

Beautiful!

Charles, your lighting is always something special, in your second image the illusion of depth is very pleasing. Crisp and sharp as always. Marvelous work.
