This is a photo of the mountains around the Portelet pass, near the Spanish-French border.
We are going higher and higher in the Pyrenees mountains.
We get at our highest point, almost 2000 meter, near the French border.
A few small trees just surviving in favourable spots. All other vegetation is much smaller. Like this lichen.
On a rock, a northern wheatear.
On another rock, near a lakelet, a yellowhammer.
We go back, following the Rio Gallego river downwards.
As we went back, two sparrowhawks circling. Lots of mallards in a lake.
Red kites flying.
On the river banks, two dippers. Every now and then, they dive.
