Postcard from the Canaries

A pod of bottlenose dolphins, off Tenerife

Madeiran wall lizards

Unidentified sea fish, Vigo, Spain


We saw clouds of Painted Lady butterflies in Lanzarote
More on the friendliness of Madeiran lizards here:

Welcome back, looks like you had a better time than our rain soaked week in Wales.
Nice lizard picture.

Funnily enough, I think you'd miss the rain (yes, even when it's like this!). I didn't like the landscape at all - it's almost desert, with no standing water, no streams or rivers. There are very few insects and I can't imagine there'd be many wild mammals about either.

The lizards were terrific fun, though.
