Walking through the Haghier Mountains, a butterfly decided to take a rest on my boot. The Glass-Tip Acraea (Acraea neobule socotrana) is easily distinguished from all other species by the transparent wingends. Socotra is home to more than a thousand plant and animal species found nowhere else on Earth. Nevertheless, the effects of climate change and the increasing impact of the human beings are threatening this delicate ecosystem.
