Laura Hart’s Rare Glass Butterflies

In a series that features rare and endangered butterfly species, glass artist Laura Hart creates stunning facsimiles that bring a whole new meaning to ‘fragile species’.

Delicately fusing glass to create these accurate tributes, her work is one-of-a-kind, never repeating the same design twice.  Really impressive work, via Colossal:
