A few days in Murcia Spain

Thought I would post a few (well 16) images of first time seen species seen by myself while away visiting my cousin at his new home in Los Nietos, Cartagena, Murcia, Spain.

In total the 5 day trip saw around 80 species and about 20 being lifers, I did not get images of all but here are the 16 I did get. Hope you like?
