We came upon this ball of newly-hatched caterpillars on a heliathemun but we’re not sure which butterfly or moth they will turn into, possibly small tortoiseshell.
The first orchids of the year are out. These striking fan-lipped orchids are very common here.
We also saw some gagias, pretty, little yellow flowers, which belong to the lily family.
Asphodels, which grow in abundance on the estepa, are coming into flower, too.
We walked as far as the ridge above the hippy colony at Las Vacas.
The stones here are covered with fossils of sea shells which must at least seven million years old.
