Monarch Butterfly

Lunch in the nearby town of Benalmadena and an opportunity for a stroll around the Parque De La Paloma, where there's an excellent colony of Monarch butterflies. There was certainly plenty on the wing and we estimated around 40/50 were seen during our walk. 

Painted Lady

Also on the wing were a few Painted Ladies and of course, you can't help but come across the small groups of noisy and marauding Monk Parakeets

Monk Parakeet

Spent the afternoon and early evening on the terrace with the usual selection of species and joined today briefly by a passing Firecrest.

iPhone photo ~ Stunning sunset showing the distant mountains of Morocco and Africa

The sunset was spectacular and with the crystal clear air, I don't think I've ever seen Morocco showing so well across the Alboran Sea, simply amazing!
