The view towards St Emilianos from Lappatoniou castle.

A superb male red-veined darter.

Lots of red admirals about although this one looks decidely moth eaten.

And finally a herb. Thymus capitatus looking like a bonsai tree and growing out of a crack in the limestone. Who knows how old? 10, 20, 50 years old?
