Butterflies of Asturias
Every spring and after a complicated biological process the different butterfly species start to deploy their wings and proboscis in an amazing performance for survival.
These beautiful, colorful and fragile Lepidoptera are spread all over the Asturian territory, all the way from the sea shores to the highest summits of the Cantabrian
Mountains. Flying or gliding, they are joyful to see while reminding us their role as key elements in the environmental complexity of Asturias’ ecological niches.
