I would like to point you to a recent paper by Shevtsova et al. (2011) dealing with color patterns displayed on transparent insect wings including Diptera. The article is Open Access at: et al. (2011) PNAS

Better images can be accessed here:


Shevtsova, E.; Hansson, C.; Janzen, D. H. & Kjśrandsen, J. (2011): Stable structural color patterns displayed on transparent insect wings. - Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 108(2): 668-673.
