This is another shot from the first morning just outside Monfrague. I have to admit when I first arrived I expected butterflies to be basically everywhere however to begin with it wasn't the case - for the first 2 days all I really saw were Meadow Browns.

 

After a few really hot days things changed. Clouded Yellows everywhere and, on a particular walk in the hills, Two Tailed Pasha, Swallowtails, Spanish Purple Hairstreak and so many more. The Pasha was just incredible - no images I'm afraid however they were just so in-your-face beautiful.

 

Not the best of shots as not all in focus and some grass in front however a beautiful butterfly all the same.

This bird was found on some of the rocky outcrops close to the castle in Monfrague.

By walking just 15 mins from the main path I was able to sit in almost perfect peace and quiet. With a bit of patience these birds will come by relatively closely as they don't seem to be bothered by human presence.

Puente romano en Madrigal de la Vera

Esta idílica y cautivadora villa se encuentra ubicada en el prodigioso Val de Xálima, en el noroeste de la provincia de Cáceres. San Martín de Trevejo cuenta, en la actualidad, con unos 800 habitantes aproximadamente, y aunque perteneció hasta el año 1833 a la provincia de Salamanca y hasta el año 1958 a la diócesis de Ciudad Rodrigo, hoy en día forma parte de los veinte pueblos que integran el conjunto de la Sierra de Gata.

Su estratégica situación, muy próxima a la frontera con Portugal y en pleno corazón de la ya mencionada Sierra de Gata, provoca que San Martín de Trevejo ostente un fenómeno cultural extraordinario, que junto con su magnánima vegetación, puede ofrecer al visitante un conjunto patrimonial y paisajístico único en el mundo. Si a todo ello le sumamos su particular arquitectura, donde se incluyen los originales arroyos de cristalinas aguas que risueñamente surcan las empedradas calles.
