Holy orchids, butterfly, golden oriole, lizards

This December 2017 video says about itself:

Out in the wind-swept Aegean Sea, the Greek island of Tilos has never been afraid to go its own way. From hosting Greece’s first gay wedding to welcoming modern-day refugees, the history of the island is a story of bravery and boldness in action. Now, the island is working toward adding another milestone to that list as the first Greek island to go 100 percent renewable.

After 21 April 2019, still on Tilos island on 22 April.

As usually, the Sardinian warbler is the first bird we hear.

Like yesterday, the footpath in the direction of Scafi.

Again, the holy orchids of the farmhouse ruin.

Some people compare their flowers to bird silhouettes.

Like the other photos of this blog post, this is a macro lens photo.

For the first time, we see a clouded yellow butterfly.

Again, like yesterday, a sling-tailed agama. This time one creeping away into a hole in a wall.

This time, we walk another path, to the east. A golden oriole flies.

Beetles, 22 April 2019

As this photo shows, two beetles mating on a flower. I would say: scarlet lily beetles.

A cuckoo calls.

Close to the village, a golden oriole flies away from a tree.

Two collared doves on a wire.
