Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

Short walk along the Lucerne fields.
 
Meadow Brown (Maniola jurtina).
I parked and walked up stream for a short way looking for Butterflies on the thistle plants finding several Meadow Browns (Maniola jurtina), Bath Whites (Pontia daplidice), Common / Southern Blue (Polyommatus icarus / celina), Clouded Yellow (Colias corcea) and Southern Brown Argus (Aricia cramera).
Bath White (Pontia daplidice).

There were also quite a few Carpentor Bees (Xylocopa violacea) nectering on the Thistles as well as another unknown beast.
Clouded Yellow (Colias corcea).
Southern Brown Argus (Aricia cramera).
As I walked I also saw
Woodchat Shrike (Alcaudón Común / Lanius senator), Zitting Cisticola (Buitrón / Cisticola juncidis), Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor), Spanish (Yellow) Wagtail (Lavandera Boyera / Motacilla flava iberiae), Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala), Montagu's Harrier (Aguilucho Cenizo / Circus pygargus), Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops) and European Bee-eater (Abejaruco Común / Merops apiaster).
One needing a name.
