Retezat Mountains – August 1/5, 2015

The second trip of 2015 inside the Retezat National Park. The following shots span on a period of five days and present some of the butterfly species that may be found in different areas, as well as two individuals of the species Vipera berus. This trip was focused on different activities regarding insect species mostly, not so much on photography. This year (2016) it will be a little different I think…

First, some mountain views:

And the second one, perhaps the most beautiful individual of this species ever found by me (and I did find around 20 in the last few years):
