Butterflies and Dragonflies

A variety of butterflies and dragonflies can be seen in Fuerteventura. Some of the species that now live here originated in other countries, and they seem to have evolved into variations of that species. Due to the constant warm climate in Fuerteventura, butterflies can be seen throughout the year.
