Peripapus ater

The Coal tit Periparus ater is a species of passerine bird in the Paridae family found in Eurasia and North Africa.

This will allow us to locate it in the high branches of the pine forests of our mountains, where it usually searches for insects and seeds accompanied by other congeners. […]

Viernes Santo. El Santo Entierro

The insolent storm that has punished Cuenca these days has had the deference to respect the mourning of the Holy Burial Procession, a funeral that has brought back the pulse of Holy Week in Cuenca. With this truce, the Holy Burial parade has been able to take to the streets, solemn and silent as a sign of respect for the death of Jesus of Nazareth, participatory in terms of brothers – more than 500 Nazarenes in tulips – and supported […]

Vulpes vulpes

The cunning of this chicken-coop troublemaker can be sensed in his gaze, and is beyond any doubt. Its small size forces it to resort to intelligence to survive. All the images of this common fox specimen were taken on a winter day in 2010, in the Sierra de Enguera, while accompanying Pastor Miguel along the Vereda Real de Almansa, between the Altos de Salomón, the Altos de la Diabla and the Casa of Matea. The fox followed us late in […]

Tarentola mauritanica

Most people tend to show a special revulsion towards reptiles. Perhaps it is because of that disturbing touch of poikilothermic or cold-blooded animals: a touch that many associate with that of death. In any case, it is an atavistic, irrational feeling that does not allow us to properly value the important role that reptiles play for the normal functioning of natural ecosystems. Because beyond this natural aversion, the truth is that reptiles fulfill a fundamental mission as pest controllers, keeping […]
