Butterflies at Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Firsts for 2009.

Whilst doing a bit of gardening in the sunshine (+29 max), several species of butterflies were seen including my first Moroccan Orange-tips ( Puntaanaranjada / Anthocharis belia) x3, Provence Hairstreak (Cardenillo / Tomares ballus) x2 and Swallowtail (Macaon / Papilio machaon) of the year. Other species seen included Small White (Blanquita de la Col / Artogeia rapae), Large White (Blanca de la Col / pieris brassicae), Clouded Yellow (Colias Común / Colias crocea) and Bath White (Blanquiverdosa / Pontia daplidice).
