Whilst going up Mulhacen the other day I saw this little fellow crawling by, so took a picture of him and when I got back I posted the picture on a web forum I use to help identify all things nature to Spain. Turns out its a rare butterfly and very much protected (glad I didnt tread on it) and is endemic to the Sierra Nevada. It is a Parnassius Apollo butterfly.
